It's Time To P-A-R-T-Y with Weird Holidays! In the United States, August is National Back to School month. Some US School districts and systems return to school  and because of that, August has always been the month to get in a party before going "back-to-school."  Once school starts, the parties are on hold until everyone settle into their new school schedules. Once classes start chugging along so does the weird holidays and everyones back into the holiday party mood again!

Friendship Day: (first Sunday in August)
This one is not so weird and belongs with Unofficial holidays but we thought we would list it as a friendship reminder. It's a day known for women to get together over coffee. " An invitation for coffee is synonymous with an offer of friendship."

The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in US in 1935(no references). Gradually the festival gained popularity and today Friendship Day is celebrated in large number of countries. On this day people spend time with their friends and express love for them. Exchange of Friendship Day Gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition of this occasion.

Gnocchi Day (29) ArgentinaFood Holiday
"The Europeans brought many of their influences to Argentina and one of their great contributions was the gnocchi. Apparently Argentineans were pretty impressed with this food because it not only received its own day of the year, it received its own 12 days of the year. The 29th of every month is Gnocchi Day, (or as the Argentineans call it “ñoquis del 29″)"
