National Matchmaker Day

There is always someone willing to put themselves out there and try to make a perfect match between people in their circle of friends, and sometimes by matching their friends with complete strangers. It’s a practice that dates back to the beginning of civilization and probably even further than that. That’s why someone has gone ahead and created a holiday to celebrate these matchmakers. This holiday is known as National Matchmaker Day, and it falls on August 31st every year so those matchmakers can mark it on their calendars and begin planning whom they’re going to set up with whom.
