Peter Piper's Picks - Aug 23rd - BIRTHDAY Edition

Yup, it's almost my birthday! (August 26th, for those of you hoping to send me birthday cards. Heh.) So, in honor of August babies, here are some August/birthday related picks...

Here's what happend in World History on my birthday! I found this pretty interesting.

August's lovely pale green birthstone - Peridot.

What is your REAL age? Hallelujah - I'm apparently 17! (I'm not sure my back agrees, though.) Or this one, which is a little bit more thorough - and, unfortunately, probably more accurate...this one says my Real Age is 36.6.

I always enjoy reading about traditions from other countries - here are some birthday ones.

Besides birthdays - there is much more to celebrate in August - like National Dog Day, Crackers over the Keyboard Day, and National Underwear Day. This website has serious and silly lists for each month.
