A National Holiday Worth Celebrating: National Lego Day

The fine folks at GeekDad have set aside the first Saturday in August as Lego Day. They are urging others to join in and create a national holiday:
I am happy to announce that this year’s theme is Doctor Who. While my older son has already created several minifigures of The Doctor and his companions, I think this year’s theme will be quite a challenge.
So, drag out your bins of Lego, clear the living room floor, and join us in celebrating the fun, imagination, and creativity of Lego on Lego Day, Saturday, August 4, 2012.
I don't know enough about Dr. Who to follow the GeekDad theme, but a few hours with Legos sounds like a great way to spend a hot Saturday and avoid the threat of "August Heat." Bad literary pun aside, the timing is perfect, a day of creative play a few weeks before school starts. All the day needs to be perfect is a special meal like turkey dinner or snack like Christmas cookies.
