There is always something to celebrate these days. From time to time my Facebook feed will remind me that it is National (fill in the blank) Day. I haven’t seen any for a few days, so I though I would investigate. I discovered that August 3rd was not only National Watermelon Day, but also National Georgia Day!

How did we miss National Georgia Day? Enjoy our list of some of the famous people, places and things in Georgia.

If I missed something or someone, you can email me.
