May 8th holidays

May 8th is the 128th day in the Gregorian calendar. On this day Reinhold Messmer and Peter Habeler became the first climbers to ascend Mt. Everest without supplemental oxygen. The day also marks the end of the Prague Uprising, now a national holiday in the Czech Republic, and the first matches in the Italian Football League were played. Famous May 8th birthdays include former President Harry Truman and singer Enrique Iglesias. Today is National Teacher's Day and National Have a Coke Day.
