NATIONAL POWER RANGERS DAY
On August 28, It’s Morphin’ Time! National Power Rangers Day officially recognizes the original “teenagers with attitude” and celebrates all things Power Rangers!
In 1993, five ordinary teenagers exploded on the pop-culture scene with the launch of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Together they broke down barriers and defeated evil by demonstrating teamwork, inclusivity, and diversity to people of all ages. Today, this grand tradition continues as new Ranger teams and new generations of fans discover these essential values over and over again.
On National Power Rangers Day everyone gets to be a Power Ranger! What are your Ranger skills and abilities? Do you have super strength or enhanced memory? Maybe your talent hasn’t been discovered yet. That’s ok! No matter where you live or who you are, with discipline, mindfulness, and heart, anyone can become a Power Ranger. Ultimately, the goal is to call your friends, color coordinate and get ready to celebrate National Power Rangers Day!

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day on August 28 sets aside a day to remember the pet companions we’ve lost.
The death of a pet, whether furry, feathered or an uncommon variety, we feel the loss deeply. They become family and a familiar part of our lives. Mourning their death is different for everyone and Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day provides a way to help heal the ache of loss.
Celebrate the home you provided and the joy your beloved pet brought you in return. When you are ready, you will know time has arrived to find a new ‘critter’ to replace the emptiness felt. There are many animals yet to find a home and in time you can be their new home.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take time to enjoy memories of your pet. Look through pictures. Consider a visit to an animal shelter if you feel ready. Volunteering time may help the adjustment. Use #RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay to share on social media.
Deborah Barnes founded Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day in honor of her cat, Mr. Jazz. Cats are interesting, and lovable, little friends to have around the home. Always missed when they are gone. It’s the same with any pet in truth.
NATIONAL BOW TIE DAY
Many people across the nation will be wearing a bow tie on August 28th in honor of the annually celebrated National Bow Tie Day.
The Croation mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century were the originators of the bow tie. This bow tie consisted of a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts. Using the name cravat (which derived from the French for “Croat”), the upper classes in France soon adopted this idea.
Styles range to suit attire and occasion. They cross eras and generations. Some recognizable names from history and fiction have worn bow ties and have worn them well. Winston Churchill, James Bond, Groucho Marx, Orville Redenbacher, Jerry Lewis, Bill Nye, Indiana Jones, Donald Duck and Les Nessman are just a few. The bow tie continues to carry fashion power, today.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Learn to tie a bow tie. Find your style. Then wear it fearlessly! Use #NationalBowTieDay to share on social media.
National Bow Tie Day has been observed since at least 2007, but National Day Calendar was unable to identify the founder of the day.
