Isn't August the only month without a holiday?

Also I've heard that August is said to have "The Dog Days of Summer" because it was in the heat of August that dogs most often went mad.

It was re-named in honor of Augustus Caesar.

It also has a great annual meteor shower.

I understand that Elvis died on Madonna's 19th birthday. Rumor has it, she took it as a sign, so she packed her bags & headed for New York.

Marilyn Monroe's grandmother tried to kill her as an infant, thinking her sixth toe was a curse. She later committed suicide in an insane asylum. Marilyn Monroe died on the anniversary of her grandmother's suicide.

Not in the U.S., we officially start autumn on the equinox, 9/22. I kind of like the way you guys do it, starting at the beginning of the month. Easier to remember.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
