Once upon a time, August 25th wasn’t a very interesting day. So after taking an online test, August 25th decided to get involved with a new hobby in order to be more interesting. It studies real estate, and practically overnight became a Known Entity.
On 1718, the French founded New Orleans and named it after the Duke of Orleans (who had often flooded).
In 1825, the Day gave Uruguay a little poke and it declared its independence from Brazil (thereby missing out on the Olympics and Zika).
In 1916, the 25th helped the Department of the Interior created the National Park Service so that Smokey the Bear would have a career and the White House would have a caretaker. Which worked fine until the White House was blown up in Olympus Has Fallen (which I watched this weekend for the first time).
In 1944, the French liberated Paris and August 25th did a happy dance.
Hopefully, today will be a good enough day for August 25th to do another jig.
