Underwear Day, Picnic Day, Beer Day, more

August 5th, 2013, is  Work Like a Dog Day, National Underwear Day, Picnic Day (Australia), Civic Holiday (Canada), Bank Holiday (Ireland), Shop and Office Workers' Holiday (Iceland), and International Beer Day..

Work Like a Dog Day doesn't sound like much of a holiday. I guess it depends on what kind of dog. Police dogs work hard, as do guard dogs and service animals. My dog, on the other hand, just eats, sleeps, plays, and licks.

On National Underwear Day, FreshPair hopes to break the world record for the largest gathering of people in their underwear. Register here. The event will take place at Times Square in New York, August 5th at 5:00 p.m. E.S.T.

Picnic Day is celebrated on the first Monday in August in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Some Canadians celebrate a Civic Holiday on the first Monday in August.

The Republic of Ireland enjoys time off today for their Bank Holiday, also known as La Saoire i mi Lunasa.

Icelanders enjoy a day off on the first Monday in August, celebrating Shop and Office Workers' Holiday.

Today is International Beer Day, "because we all need another excuse to drink beer."
