Daily Holidays - August 28

Race Your Mouse Around the Icons Day Itís almost unresistable Ė when your computer is slow to load, and when youíre waiting for something to happen, you canít resist the urge to play with the mouse and the cursor.

Whether youíre procrastinating, plain bored or itís actually one of your favourite sporting activities (if so, you should probably re-evaluate a few thingsÖ just saying), then this day is your day to go nuts. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Race Your Mouse Around The Icons Day embraces this, and encourages you to go crazy with your cursor! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/race-your-mouse-around-the-icons-day/

Radio Commercials Day Radio commercials are often seen as an irritation to be endured while waiting for some music to come on, but they have been part of the entertainment business for nearly a century and provide employment for many people. Radio Commercials Day commemorates the day when the very first radio commercial was broadcast on New York station, WEAF. This took place on August 28th 1922 and was for an American estate agent, Queensboro Realty. It wasnít until 1973 that the UK had its first radio commercial, which ran on LBC and promoted Birds Eye frozen food. Many early radio commercials can be found online, and a great way to celebrate Radio Commercials Day is to listen to a few and be transported back in time. Alternatively, track down some radio commercials from around the world and be entertained by the huge variety of tone and style that are used in radio adverts from different countries. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/radio-commercials-day/

Bow Tie Day Bow ties are cool, right? On any other day, when at work, school, or reclining at home, wearing a bow tie might earn you some funny looks. Bow Tie Day is different, and wearers of bow ties can be found everywhere from the office to the street. Take advantage, and show off your bow tie to the world! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/bow-tie-day/
