Wiggle Your Toes Day, National Night Out, more

August 6th, 2013, is Wiggle Your Toes Day, National Night Out, Egton Bridge Gooseberry Show, Fresh Breath Day, Hiroshima Day, H.H. Sheikh Zayed Accession, Independence Day (Jamaica), and Root Beer Float Day.

Wiggle Your Toes Day is a time to let your tootsies dance - on carpet, in the grass, at the pool, or, best of all, in the sand on a tropical beach. Enjoy!

The United States observes National Night Out tonight, except for Texas, which observes the event on October 2nd. The National Night Out is meant to deter crime and drug use.

The Egton Bridge Gooseberry Show takes place on the first Tuesday in August. The festival, which originated in 1800, is the oldest surviving such celebration in the United Kingdom.

Brush your teeth, rinse, then brush again. Now gargle some mouthwash and check on your supply of breath mints. You can't afford to be caught with bad breath on National Fresh Breath Day.

Hiroshima Day marks the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II.

H.H. Sheikh Zayed Accession is celebrated as a festival in the United Arab Emirates. Parades and operas celebrate the country's advancements during the Sheikh's reign.

Jamaica celebrates fifty years of independence on Independence Day 2013.

Today is Root Beer Float Day. Grab a tall, frosty glass, scoop in some creamy vanilla ice cream, and pour over some delicious bubbly root beer. Now you're ready to celebrate!
