17 Ways to Celebrate August!
A monthly seasonal living list helps us celebrate each season of the year and find joy in everyday!
An ordinary day in our common calendar can become charged with memory and meaning, can become in a way, hallowed...We choose to mark dates because in some way they have marked us. So we set them apart to remember and as appropriate, to grieve or celebrate, or give thanks. Such days are no longer ordinary. We go beyond scattered celebrations, memorials, and holidays. We go beyond keeping the year's special occasions to regarding the entire calendar as sacred. We can, in effect, sacralize time itself.
