CELEBRATE IN THE MONTH OF AUGUST - National S'mores Day
We are now in the month of August and there are several National Holidays during this month to have a reason to celebrate! I found some of these Holidays to be somewhat quirky and off-beat, I couldn't help but highlight them throughout this month, just for fun!
Here is a glimpse at what I have and will be highlighting this month:
Aug. 4th - National Mustard Day
Aug. 10th - National S'mores Day
Aug. 13th - International Left Handers Day
Aug. 16th - National Tell a Joke Day
Aug. 19th - National Aviation Day
Aug. 26th - National Dog Day
August 10th - National S'mores Day
Who doesn't like S'mores?? I love them!!! That delicious chocolate, melted by a fire-charred marshmallow, then squeezed together inside two graham crackers. YUM! YUM! Well today is the day, your excuse, to make and devour these traditionally camping treasures because today is National S'mores Day! Although the origin of S'mores is uncertain, the first recorded version of them was found in a 1927 publication by the Girl Scouts and were originally called "Some Mores."
I'm sure most people are familiar with traditional S'mores, so I thought I'd post recipes that were more non-traditional. Enjoy your day!

So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.
