August 8

What happened on August 8?

Irish musician David Howell Evans (*1961) kicks off the party today, playing his evergreens on CBD Day. Canadian singer Shawn Mendes (*1998) joins him on stage, throwing his incredible voice into the mix.

By the way, CBD is the abbreviation of the word ‘cannabidiol’, a key chemical of the cannabis plant.

Listen to David’s music, relax, and pet your cat if you have one. Yes, today we celebrate Cat Day & cannabis – what a marvelous combination. Especially if the weather isn’t too great outside, you have all the inspiration you need for a nice warm day at home.

In case the weather outside is inviting, though, get your walking shoes on!
Photographer Iain Macmillan went outside on this day in 1969 and shot one of the most iconic photos ever: The Beatles at a zebra crossing.

And if you’re more of a mountain-crossing person than a fan of crossing zebras, head over to Mont Blanc. This legendary mountain was climbed for the first time in 1786. Imagine the old-school gear they were wearing at the time. That makes the event even more special.

Our special guests at today’s birthday party are also very special. Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer (*1981) is joined on the dancefloor by American actors Connie Stevens (*1938) and Dustin Hoffman (*1937). Such incredible careers and lives. So much deep stuff to think about today. With your cat and CBD…
