August 2023 Calendar Printable
Most people expect an attractive photo to compliment a calendar but blank calendars are among our most popular and most downloaded free printable calendars.
We made them in different formats, landscape and portrait, with or without decorative borders, with a touch of pink, purple or blue color and there are also calendars with Canadian holidays already marked in. There are no huge holidays for USA in August, sorry... But this doesn't mean there are no special days and occasions calling for celebration!
Next two calendars present national and American days and observances in August 2023. Among national days you can find some serious ones like Coast Guards Day, Purple Heart Day or days appreciating parents, middle children or sisters, and also some more lighthearted days like Lazy Day or Presidential joke Day. What about American Days? There you can find the major religious observation in August (Assumption of Virgin Mary), Aviation Day aka Pilot Day which falls on the birthday of Orville Wright (1871-1948), and several statehood days celebrating the important milesones of the states which are part of the United States, like Colorado, Rhode Island, Connecticut, South Carolina, Massachusets and Hawaii. This means our calendars with special days and observations can be a fun and visually pleasing educating tools as well.
Next two special calendar sheets are also attractive. The first is an astro calendar marking the most important astronomical and astrological events in August. Some people say that horoscopes work even for people who don't believe in horoscopes. The other calendar in the same line presents a huge list of international holidays and observances, some officially recognized, like International Youth Day or World Humanitarian Day (both from UN), other more fun, like World Lizard Day or Play in the Sand Day, but the main goal is the same - to improve awareness of specific elements of out environment, no matter if we are dealing with people or other living beings or events which crucuially shaped our lives.
While there is only one major Christian holiday in August (Assumption), we still managed to prepare two religiously themed calendars - the first one is a multifaith calendar for August, marking important dats in some of the major religions in the world, all being present in USA too, the other is focusing on Catholic saints who are still important source of inspiration for numerous parents who are looking for suitable names for their children.
We conclude our list of calendars with special days in august with two interesting lists of important celebrations.
In Chinese calendar you'll find the ways from where joy, happiness and wealt come, but also warnings about possible bad omens or signs from Chinese horoscopes who might be problematic on certain days in the month. There is also the so-called Double Seventh which falls on August the 4th, Chinese version of Valentine's with more and more popular Qixi festival.
And ther's of course Pagan calendar for August 2023 with most important dates for Wicca followers and the most important pagan celebration in August - Lammas which at least in some parts of the world became kind of adopted Christian celebration while neo-Pagans prefer Lughnasadh term - in both cases falling on the first day in August but not always celebrated then (check the in-depth article about Lammas).
Did you know August got its name after Roman emperor Augustus Caesar, who succeeded more known Julius Caesar (who got 'his' own month few years before)? The Roman senate which decided to him this tremendous honor supposedly also decided to change the length of the month from 30 to 31 days - to be equal to the month of July. The extra day was taken from the February (previously having 29 on regular or 30 days on leap years), but several documents can prove this popular theory is wrong - July and August had the same length before Julius or Augustus had the power of changing a calendar.
August is the month when most big institutions close their doors in northern hemisphere. Some experts even claim this is the worst month for TV programmes - it is all reruns. This should be one more reason to get out, in nature and enjoy the summer while it lasts. It will eventually pass. September is coming... We can count on this for sure:)
