Happy August '11

Just came to my mind, when we wish everybody a happy new year and all, why can't we wish a Happy new Month! I do it regularly, and I don't know how many of you do so, so just thought to share it with the whole world!! A happy August! Hope you all have a great month full of fun!! ^_^

By the way, we know its the eighth month of the Georgian Calendar. It is also called "Get Ready for Kindergarten Month"! LOL! In common years no other month starts on the same day of the week as August, though in leap years February starts on the same day. August ends on the same day of the week as November every year.

In Japanese, the month is called hachigatsu (八月), meaning, simply, "eighth month. In classical Japanese the name is ”葉月” Meaning, month of leaves".

August's birthstone is the peridot or onyx. Its birth flower is the gladiolus or poppy, meaning beauty, strength of character, love, marriage and family.

And most important, its my Birthday in this month!! LOL!!
