National Watermelon Day

Friday, August 03, 2012

emoticonNational Watermelon Day emoticon

When: Always on August 3rd

This big fruit deserves it's own big day. And, so we give pause to celebrate watermelons on National Watermelon Day. Sweet and tasty, watermelons are one of summer's favorite fruit. It's standard fare at picnics. While watermelon is over 90% water, it sure tastes good. And, what picnic would be complete without a seed spitting contest?

Our research was unable to establish this day a a true national day (which requires an act of congress). We also have not uncovered the origin of this day. we suspect it originated by an agricultural organization, or perhaps a wild and crazy watermelon fan.

Please don't limit your consumption of watermelon to just this month. Stores carry watermelon twelve months of the year.

    Normally I don't like watermelon because its so messy, but I'll make an exception today because i have seen "personal" watermelons at HEB and they should be easier to eat. Besides, I'm tired of the same old fruit.
