On March 21, Say Thanks to California Strawberries — And Baguettes

March 21 is National California Strawberry Day.

Not National Strawberry Day – that’s February 27.

Nor is it National Strawberry Shortcake Day. That’s June 14.

National Strawberry Picking Day looms closer on the horizon. It’s May 20.

July 7 is National Strawberry Sundae Day.

The nation celebrates strawberry parfait on June 25.

January 15 is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day. It’s shoehorned between National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day on the 14th and Fig Newton Day on the 16th.

March 21 is no day of celebration for the hard-working California strawberry industry. March 21 is a day-long symposium in Irvine on “drosophila management for strawberries,” sponsored by the California Strawberry Commission, whose website is mum on the genesis of California Strawberry Day.

March 21 is also National French Bread Day.

After a cursory Internet search, it remains unclear as to how these various days are established.

However, since March 21 is also Common Courtesy Day, California’s Capitol merely thanks those who originated these celebrations and rememberances for their thoughtfulness.
