National Zucchini Bread Day
When Is : Always April 23
National Zucchini Bread Day is a day to enjoy Zucchini bread. In researching this day, we first asked ourselves "why hold this day in the spring, when this prolific garden squash in not in great supply?" The answer quickly dawned on us....they hold this at a time when you are not sick of all that zucchini.
In the summer months, the prolific zucchini plant produces more fruit than gardeners can use. As summer progresses, everyone becomes sick and tired of the eating zucchini. But, the harvest goes on, day after day, after day. By mid summer, gardeners are resorting to all sorts of tricks to get rid of the mountains of fruit produced in their gardens. Some even stealthily leave zucchini on neighbors' door step in the middle of the night.
So her you are in the month of April. Zucchini finds its way in small supply to grocery stores in your area. Now, you've got the urge for zucchini bread. Hence, the creation of this day in April!
