The end of August means the second half of summer. Kids getting in those last days of fun and freedom before heading back to school. Travel, sun, and summer sports.

It also means plenty of special events.

So what do we put on our August 2019 Calendar if we want to make it the best we can? Here are a few dates you might want to include. And probably a few you've never heard of…

August 2: National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

It's still early in the month, and with summer in full swing, temperatures across the country are going as hot as ever. Cool off with an ice cream sandwich (or two)! Not everyone knows about this fine holiday, but we feel it's one that needs to be on every calendar…

August 9: Book Lover's Day

Here's a holiday for the bookworm in your life: Book Lover's Day. Once we're adults, many of us only have time to read for work or education. But it's a pleasurable pastime as well.


So find a cool bit of shade, a hammock, or a good spot under an umbrella near the beach. Grab a drink and crack open a book and read just for the fun of it.

August 17: National Thrift Shop Day

Who doesn't love a bargain? National Thrift Shop Day may not be an “official” holiday as such, but that won't stop us from celebrating it. Get out and get some good deals at the stores in your area.

August 22: National Dog Day

This holiday was founded partly to recognize our furry friends, but also to draw attention to the need for safe adoptions for pets.


Dogs have been a part of our human story for hundreds of years. Many consider them friends and family, and they also sometimes carry out very dangerous tasks, both in crime-fighting and in rescue situations.


The National Dog Day Foundation instituted this holiday with the goal of rescuing 10,000 dogs annually for adoption.

August 31: National Eat Outside Day

The last day of the month is here, so it's a good excuse to get as much last-minute fun as possible. With summer ending as well, what better chance to picnic in the park with friends and family one more time? Soak up the sun, breathe the fresh air, bring your lawn games and grab some food while you're at it.

A lot can happen in a single month, and this one is no exception. From arts to food to music to sports, we've got it covered.

The original Burning Man festival took place in 1986, when Larry Harvey and Jerry James held a fire party attended by a few dozen people at Baker Beach in San Francisco. Three decades later, the party is going strong in the Nevada desert, drawing a crowd of 50,000 people, who converge on a single point, build a small city, and then burn it all (after a wild weeklong extravaganza, of course.)

Best Sites: Finding ​The Perfect Calendar Template

Fortunately, when it comes to downloading your August 2019 calendar to your computer, you aren't stuck with just one option. There are a few different sites out there that provide excellent and adjustable calendars. You can even plan months (or even years) in advance, if you are the type who wants to be extra prepared.


Here are the best resources for printing your own August 2019 calendar:


Calendarpedia

The fine folks at Calendarpedia have created a system that's remarkably flexible. It can be used to create documents as PDFs, Word Documents, or Excel Spreadsheets. If you're looking to create a physical calendar for your office or business, this is a great choice.


A quick look at the home site reveals that you can find a simple monthly calendar right away. An August 2019 calendar is one you can select from the main page.


The template map gives you a choice of landscape orientation, as well as different styles. There's a rainbow format if you're looking for color, or a large number format if you prefer to give the calendar a quick glance to see what day a certain date is (although there's not much room on this one for extra information).


You can pick a landscape format or a horizontal format, and all of them are incredibly easy to print as well.


The options don't stop there. Calendars for other countries such as Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom are also available, as are fiscal calendars and school year calendars, depending on your particular goals.


Print-A-Calendar

Alternatively, you can go with Print-A-Calendar. At first glance, the options here look a little slimmer, although they still offer both a PDF and Microsoft Excel version, the Word option is missing. In addition, there are slightly fewer templates.


But the real strength of the Print-A-Calendar site is that you can really play around with the details of the calendar itself with their “make a calendar” feature. Choose the size, chose the orientation, and see right then and there what the end product will look like.


As a final feature, Print-A-Calendar also allows you to add your own notes right in the month itself, so if you have goals that you need to communicate to a co-worker, family member, or anyone in your organization, you can simply enter them at the same time. It's all about the maximum efficiency.


Timeanddate.com

Lastly, the organization at timeanddate.com has developed a site that allows you to build a template with a lot of extra features. If you want to include religious holidays on the calendar, an “observances” option allows you to pick a religion and add major holidays or add many more as well. Astronomy events, phases of the moon, and world observances are also potential add-ons here.


You can even create a profile and add personalized options. Additional features can be unlocked it you donate to help the website, but the basic version is free. If you're looking for a printable calendar with the personalized information included, this could be the one for you.

Making ​The Most of Your Time


There's little else in life that's as satisfying as taking charge of your time. The ability to decide for yourself what you'll do and when. And an August 2019 Calendar that you can fit to your own needs is a huge step in the right direction.

As Benjamin Franklin once mused, “do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff that life is made of.” So seize the month! Get your calendar looking the way you want it to, and live the next few weeks to the fullest.
