    August has no holidays. None. 0. Ziltch. Nada.

    January has New Year’s Day, of course; February has Valentine’s Day; March has St. Patrick’s Day; April usually has Easter; May, Mother’s Day; June, Father’s Day; July, Independence Day; September, Labor Day; October, Halloween; November, Thanksgiving; and December brings us Christmas and Hannukah.

    As you see, each month has something to observe; a day or season to look forward to.

    Then there's August, which brings us...

    National Back To School Month

    Neurosurgery Outreach Month

    National Immunization Awareness Month

    and...

    Wait for it...

    NATIONAL GOAT CHEESE MONTH!!!!

    It's cheese from goats. All. Month. Long.
