About 2023 August Holidays

It’s the last month of the summer vacation season. While there are no major holidays this month, some people say the whole month of August is one big holiday. Nevertheless, there are countless August National holidays, International holidays, and special days to celebrate and enjoy. As a matter of fact, there are at least two or more holidays and special days each day this month. Do you have room on your calendar for them all? We certainly hope so.  

What this month lacks in big holidays it makes up for by the fact that August is seemingly one big vacation holiday. Everyone is taking vacation days at the beach, at national parks, or by the fire at a campsite. While there may not be big holidays this month, there’s no shortage of lesser-known holidays to celebrate in the hammock with your favorite cold beverage.
