Roller Coaster Day, True Love Forever Day, more

August 16th, 2013, is National Men's Grooming Day, Roller Coaster Day, True Love Forever Day, National Tell a Joke Day, Restoration Day (Dominican Republic), National Rum Day, and Bratwurst Day.

National Men's Grooming Day, sponsored by American Crew, is observed on the 3rd Friday in August. Some salons and barber shops offer special deals.

Roller Coaster Day commemorates the day in 1898 when the first roller coaster was patented. Did you know the world's fastest roller coaster - 149.1 miles per hour - is in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates? Learn more at the Roller Coaster Database.

Today is True Love Forever Day. How romantic! If you have found your one true love, show them how you feel. If you haven't found your true love yet, stay hopeful - he or she is out there somewhere! (I know that from personal experience.)

In honor of National Tell a Joke Day, dust off your favorite old joke or learn some new ones. Keep your humor appropriate for your audience and have fun!

The Dominican Republic celebrates Restoration Day on August 16th with elaborate costumes and folk dancing.

If you're over twenty-one, cheers! Today is National Rum Day.

Are you hungry? Grill up some delicious sausage links and top them with mustard. Celebrate Bratwurst Day!
