NATIONAL SENIOR CITIZENS DAY
Each year on August 21, there are various events and activities held across the United States in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day. This day was created as a day to support, honor and show appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements. Their valuable contributions to our communities create better places to live.
For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older — places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity. ~ President Ronald Reagan – August 19, 1988 Proclamation 5847
HOW TO OBSERVE
To celebrate National Senior Citizens Day, spend time with the senior citizens you know. Let them know that they are appreciated and loved. It may also be a good day to volunteer at a retirement home and share your smile with those who may not otherwise get a visitor today.
If you are a senior citizen, check for special discounts and promotions that may be offered at stores and restaurants in your area.

On August 19, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5847 declaring August 21 as National Senior Citizens Day.
NATIONAL SPUMONI DAY
National Spumoni Day is observed annually on August 21.
Spumoni is a molded Italian ice cream that is made with layers of different colors and flavors that usually contain candied fruits, such as cherry bit, and nuts. The typical flavors are cherry, pistachio and either chocolate or vanilla. These ice cream layers are often mixed with whipped cream.
- Spumoni originated in Naples, Italy and was introduced to the United States in the late 1800s.
- Differing from ice cream, Spumoni is sliced and never scooped.
- Neapolitan flavored ice cream was inspired by Spumoni.
If you have never tried the delicious Italian ice cream, National Spumoni Day is the day to do so.

BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DAY
Brazilian Blowout Day is observed annually on August 21.
While summer weather is celebrated for its beach trips, vacation, barbecues, and a carefree attitude; it can also be a hair nightmare! With humidity at an all-time high, frizzy hair is in full effect across the nation. Therefore, on August 21st we celebrate National Brazilian Blowout Day, a way to calm your tresses and embrace your most beautiful self.
Through the use of innovative and breakthrough bonding technologies, the Brazilian Blowout treatment actually improves the health and condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle. So those with Brazilian Blowouts don’t have to fear the summer humidity and can feel confident in their look.
