February 8th is National Boy Scouts, National Iowa, National Kite Flying, Nirvana and more!

National Boy Scouts Day

National Boys Scouts Day is celebrated every year on February 8th. Boys across America have been doing good deeds, learning survival skills, and building morale through the Boy Scout of America since 1910.

National Iowa Day

We recognize each state in the order they entered the union, beginning with Hawaii and ending with Hawaii on Independence Day. We feature a small part of each state's past, foods, and the people who make up the state. There's so much more to discover, we can't help but celebrate our beautiful country even more.

National Kite Flying Day

National Kite Flying Day, which is celebrated annually on February 8th, encourages kite flying and making. Enthusiasts around the country commemorate the day by launching their kites or making reservations to attend festivals.

Nirvana Day

Mahayana Buddhists around the world commemorate Nirvana Day on either February 8th or 15th. Buddha's death and his initiation into complete Nirvana are commemorated in this case, also known as Parinirvana Day.
