Willing to Lend a Hand Wednesday, Crackers over the Keyboard Day, more

August 28th, 2013, is Willing to Lend a Hand Wednesday, Crackers over the Keyboard Day, Race Your Mouse around the Icons Day, Dream Day Quest and Jubilee, National Bow Tie Day, Gone-ta-Pott Day, Mariamoba, and National Cherry Turnover Day.

The last Wednesday in August is Willing to Lend a Hand Wednesday. Look around - surely someone nearby needs help toting groceries, meeting a deadline, tending their garden, or surviving until payday. Be there to lend a hand!

If you love your computer or simply want to keep your office job, you should skip this holiday. Otherwise, go crazy and celebrate Crackers over the Keyboard Day.

If you haven't ruined your computer by celebrating the holiday above, feel free to participate in Race Your Mouse around the Icons Day.

Dream Day Quest and Jubilee is one of three Emancipation Days of Respect, honoring the memory of  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. August 28th is the anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

If you're a fashion maverick or something of a geek, you'll be glad to know today is National Bow Tie Day.

The fun people at Gone-ta-Pott have declared the 28th of every month as Gone-ta-Pott Day.

The Democratic Republic of Georgia observes Mariamoba on August 28th. Pilgrims from all over the country climb a mountain to Sameba Church in Kasbegi. One tradition involves leading a lamb to the church, circling the church three times, then slaughtering, boiling, and eating the lamb.

Enjoy a tasty treat, suitable for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, in honor of National Cherry Turnover Day.
