Another day, another made-up holiday you had no idea existed. Unlike Hallmark holidays, however, you’ll actually be happy to learn about these new holidays because they actually save you money instead of costing you money. You don’t have to buy anyone flowers, chocolates, or diamonds on National Rum Day 2019… you just have to drink some rum! National Rum Day is today, believe it or not, while National Fajita Day 2019 takes place on Sunday, August 18th and National Waffle Day 2019 falls on Saturday, August 24th. Offers.com rounded up all the best deals it could find to help you celebrate these lovely fake holidays, and you can check out the full rundown below.
