Daily Holidays - February 27

National Strawberry Day Strawberry Day was created to celebrate those little red fruits bursting with sweet perfection! A gift from Chile in the 1700s, garden strawberry plants made their way to North America in the 1750s. The plant is fairly easy to grow and doesn’t seem adverse to flourishing anywhere in the world. If you’d like your own homegrown strawberries this summer, make sure your plant has full sun and sandy soil – and your dogs don’t eat off all the berries before you can pick a few. If fresh strawberries aren’t at their best in your grocery store, don’t forget the many accessible forms you can always get your hands on. Frozen and dried strawberries can help in a pinch if you’re creating in the kitchen. Strawberry preserves, ice cream, yogurt, smoothies and milkshakes are nothing to shake a stick at either. But if you are one of the lucky folks who stumbled on some great fresh strawberries, you can whip up a strawberry pie, shortcake or even a simple dish of strawberries and cream. We wish you a berry nice day, and strawberry fields forever. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/strawberry-day/

National Kahlua Day When it comes to tantalizing (and slightly sinful) beverages, there is perhaps no better example than the cool creaminess glass of Kahlua. This rich liquor is a Mexican cocktail which is greatly enjoyed around the world and so it should be no great surprise that loyal aficionados of the delicious liquid have created a day to celebrate such a tempting beverage. And rightfully so! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/kahlua-day/

International Polar Bear Day Polar Bear Day celebrates one of nature’s most impressive hunters, and the world’s largest carnivore. When fully grown, polar bears can span an enormous 9 feet (2.7m) in height. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/polar-bear-day/

Open That Bottle Night is dedicated to making sure that those bottles of fine wine put away for a special occasion, are used and enjoyed. Since the millennium, one night in the dull, dark month of February has been immeasurably brightened for wine-lovers by the creation of a special day to celebrate cherished bottles of wine, champagne and spirits. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/open-that-bottle-night/

4. I remember picking wild strawberries in the Vienna Woods as a kid

Compared to modern strawberries, they were bursting with flavor.
Commercial strawberries look good, are big, and practically tasteless.

6. I have tried growing them, but the birds always get them.

I agree with you about commercial strawberries.
