How is this holiday celebrated?
It's a day to celebrate beans in every way you can think of!
Most of our research shows that this day is celebrated by sending fun greeting cards and enjoying bean activities such as learning about beans. Elementary school teachers have been known to have a segment in class about beans in honor of National Bean Day. Preschoolers even get read the story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" as part of class.
Why not cook beans on this day such as bean soups, share some bean recipes or even have a bean party! I mean really, how many people have bean parties? You could be the first in your neighborhood! On bean day you could even give gifts-in-a-jar made from dry beans. In the South it's not uncommon to ask guests over for a southern bean and cornbread supper with sliced onions and tomatoes served on the side so if your from the south why not do it on National Bean Day.
More and more people are celebrating this holiday each year because so many people love beans. As the popularity of this holiday gains strength, we find that bean lovers turn this day into a party day by gathering together; sharing party food and drinks- and enjoying in the fun of beans.
Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites but no reference to the background of the holiday. Such as- why the month of January was picked to celebrate this day or why the 6th day?? That's the questions...
This holiday is still referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for the day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate and we do in fact find people celebrating this holiday. We found plenty of recognition from calendar sites and personal blogs over the Internet. So enjoy the day and have fun with it. "Enjoy life and make everyday a holiday!"
Here's what we found on ECard Greeting Sites
Bean Day is here, so celebrate this occasion by gorging on lots of beans. Beans keep the heart healthy and help you live longer. So go ahead and dive into bowlfuls of beans and ask others to do the same. Spread the message across by sending cool and cute ecards to all your loved ones across the world.
Definition of bean
the bean is a fruit, not a vegetable
Although "beans" usually means the seeds of bean plants, it can also mean (especially in the US) the whole young pods of bean plants, which if picked before the pods ripen and dry, can be tender enough to eat whole, whether cooked or raw. Thus the word "green beans" means "green" in the sense of unripe (many are in fact, not green in color), as the beans inside the pods of green beans are too small to comprise a significant part of the cooked fruit.
