Constitution Day in Georgia, Independence Day in the Ukraine, and National Flag Day in Kazakhstan & Liberia.

Italy has two things to celebrate.

“Maria Teresa de Filippis–the first woman ever to compete in Formula One racing–drives a Maserati in the Portuguese Grand Prix at Oporto on August 24, 1958.” ~History.com

Mount Vesuvius Day, the anniversary of the eruption in 79 A.D. This volcano is still active and any day it does not erupt is a good thing. We remember this day so are aware.

On a lighter note

“On August 24, 1967, 17 years after his first trip to the top of the pop charts, Paul Anka earns a #1 hit with “(You’re) Having My Baby,” a duet with singer Odia Cotes.” ~History.com
