Probably the least appreciated and most poked fun at branch of the military is the Coast Guard, and incorrectly so. For anyone who has ever watched an episode of Deadliest Catch and has seen a crabbing trip gone bad, they always know that the boys in orange will be doing all they can to swoop down in the rough seas and risk life and limb to save somebody that they have never met before in their life. Still think it's an easy job? Of course not, and that is why August 4th is "National Coast Guard Day".

I bet I know who really enjoys celebrating "National Watermelon Day". Yeah you know who I'm talking about. I'm talking about everybody. That's right, cause even if you don't like the delicious fruity nectar of this refreshing summer snack, you can still spit the seeds at all the people you don't like and play it off like you were just trying to not swallow the seeds. There are hardly any other foods and no other fruits in which spitting is not only acceptable but completely encouraged and that is why we celebrate August 3rd for being "National Watermelon Day".

Get your utensils and appetite ready for this holiday because July 29th is "National Lasagna Day". You would think that this dish would be fit more for the fall or winter since it is such a warm comfort food, but let's be honest, a meal that is packed with meat, cheese and pasta and smothered with tomato sauce and even more cheese can and should be enjoyed year round. Best served with some garlic bread with a little olive oil dipping sauce and a glass of Pinot Noir, lasagna is one of those meals that you can't help but go back for seconds even if you are stuffed to the brim and have zero room for more. Just look at Garfield, he was a cat and he could polish off pan after pan of lasagna with no problem. And he never even thought to share a bite with Odie.
