Lighthouse Day

August 7 is celebrated as Lighthouse Day in the United States as a way to commemorate the signing of the Act for the Establishment and support of Lighthouse, Beacons, Buoys, and Public Piers by the U.S. Congress in 1789.

In 1989, the Congress passed a resolution designating August 7 as National Lighthouse Day. The day aims to recognize the importance of lighthouses in maritime navigation and for providing ships safe harbor during bad weather.

How to Celebrate?

  • While lighthouses are becoming less and less important for the maritime industry, thanks to technological advances in GPS and radar systems, their historical importance cannot be understated. Use this day to read about the history of lighthouses.
  • If you are near the coast, why not visit one?
  • Contribute to preservation societies and groups working towards preserving historical lighthouses.

Did You Know...

...that before electricity was used to fuel the lighthouse lamp, some lighthouses used whale oil?

Texting acronyms can stump even the best parents:

Mom: Your great-aunt just passed away. LOL.

Son: Why is that funny?

Mom: It’s not funny, David! What do you mean?

Son: Mom, LOL means Laughing Out Loud.

Mom: I thought it meant Lots of Love. I have to call everyone back.

~

Daughter: I got an A in Chemistry.

Mom: WTF!

Daughter: Mom, what do you think WTF means?

Mom: Well That’s Fantastic.

~

Mom: What do IDK, LY & TTYL mean?

Son: I don’t know, love you, talk to you later.

Mom: OK, I will ask your sister.

A client called my help desk saying she couldn’t send an e-mail. When I was done troubleshooting the problem, she interrupted me to ask,

“Wait a minute, do I type @ in lower- or uppercase?”

I was in a couple’s home trying to fix their Internet connection. 
The husband called out to his wife 
in the other room for the computer password.

“Start with a capital S, then 123,” she shouted back. We tried S123 several times, but 
it didn’t work. So we called the wife in.

As she input the password, she muttered, “I really don’t know what’s so difficult about typing Start123.”

I was visiting my mother one day, when she passed the candy dish full of chocolates and took one for herself.

“I thought your doctor told you to stop eating candy,” I said.

“Oh, I don’t have to listen to him anymore,” she replied.

“Why not?”

“He died.”
