August 1: National Girlfriends Day, Lughnasadh

There's no real debate about this one: August 1 is Girlfriends Day.

The Blog of Days recommends that married men be careful about their participation in this observance.

Safer for married men might be Lughnasadh, a Celtic harvest festival -- and a warning, therefore, that the Summer, so soon begun, is almost done.

You're on your own as to how to pronounce Lughnasadh, and this Wikipedia entry on the subject will no doubt confuse you further.
