Daily Holidays - April 21

Chocolate-Covered Cashew Day National Chocolate Covered Cashews Day is celebrated each year on April 21st. The cashew is a tree from the tree family Anacardiaceae. Its English name comes from the Portuguese name for the fruit of the cashew tree “caju.” This tree is originally native to Northeastern Brazil; however, it is now widely grown in tropical climates for it’s cashew fruit and nuts. Surprisingly, the shell of the cashew nut is toxic, which is why the cashew is shelled before it is sold to consumers. The cashew nut is a very popular snack with a rich flavor. They are a well-known favorite during the holidays, but can be enjoyed anytime throughout the year. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/

Bulldogs are Beautiful Day If there’s ever a day when it’s time to look beyond appearances, it’s Bulldogs Are Beautiful Day. Known for their wrinkly faces, stocky builds and tendency to slobber, bulldogs don’t often find themselves associated with the word ‘beautiful’. On this occasion, however, things are different.

To celebrate, owners treat their beloved pets to a special adventure – be it a walk in the park or something more extensive. Delicious treats and extra cuddles are usually on the menu, too. Some dog-lovers dress their pets in cute garments and accessories. Those who don’t already own bulldogs, but have always wanted a furry, dribbling, loyal friend, can consider rescuing one from a dog home.

Bulldogs come in a wide variety of types, including Bull Mastiff, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier and the Olde English Bulldogge. They are related to the Asiatic Mastiff, which, according to historical records, lived in Mesopotamia around 4,000 BC. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/bulldogs-are-beautiful-day/

Kindergarten Day National Kindergarten Day is celebrated annually on April 21st. This day honors Friedrich Wilhelm August Frobel (April 21, 1782 – June 21, 1852) who is credited for starting the very first Kindergarten in Germany in 1837. Frobel was a German teacher and a student of Pestalozzi who laid the foundation for modern education based on the recognition that children have unique needs and capabilities. He created the concept of the “kindergarten” through play and activity institute as a social experience for children for their transition from home to school. His goal was that children should be taken care of and nourished in “children’s gardens” like plants in a garden. Today, most states in the United States offer free kindergarten to children ages five and six. Kindergarten is a fun and memorable time in the “social experience of the transition from home to school.” http://nationaldaycalendar.com/latest-posts/
