Daily Holidays - June 27

Industrial Workers of The World Day With the modernisation of industry, a move from manufacturing to consumerism and a general shift in global market operations, industrial processes and businesses are much less common than they used to be. As such, itís easy to overlook just how big a part industry still plays, and how many people are employed by industrial organisations working in industrial roles. Industrial Workers Of The World Day draws attention to these workers, and to their importance in producing the goods that we consume and rely on.https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/industrial-workers-of-the-world-day/

Sunglasses Day Elton John has over a thousand pairs, Canadian singer Corey Hart only wears his at night, and you can tell the good guys from the bad guys in The Matrix by the shape of theirs. What am I talking about? Sunglasses, of course! Thereís nothing quite as stylish as a pair of shades, so get out your aviators or your wayfarers and start celebrating Sunglasses Day! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/sunglasses-day/

Pineapple Day Itís our favorite fruit, a lush, prickly, green leafed ground fruit that is a delicious addition to just about any meal. Itís sweet and tangy on its own and is practically the definition of the word Ďtropicalí. Want to make something tropical? Put a slice of this fruit on it. Thatís right, weíre talking about the apple that isnít an apple, the pine that isnít a pine, the pineapple! Pineapple day is dedicated to this most tantalizing little fruit and the greatest myth of allÖ It doesnít grow on a tree. Didnít know that? Youíre hardly alone, most people think this prickly fruit hangs on a tree like a coconut, Nope! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/pineapple-day/

4. Definitely one thing I will miss about India

The fresh pineapples here you don't even have to core. Take the skin off and you can eat the whole thing.

9. Coconuts, pineapples, sugar cane

They all tend to be better on our foreign sojourns.

On visits to Vietnam there were streetcart vendors with sugar cane presses that would squeeze out the juice, which would be served in a glass. That was one of my favorites.

2. When I was a kid we used to occasionally get a fresh pineapple, much better tasting than canned.

Or sometimes we'd get a whole coconut - or a pomegranate. We thought it was fun - guess we learned by that to not be afraid of trying new foods.

5. Fresh is always better!

I enjoy pineapples when you can get a good one and sometimes that is difficult, but they are always great!

6. I would imagine a very sharp knife is a must!

I have since bought a pomegranate myself, but I don't remember how they handled coconuts. I think that job was left up to my Dad...

7. As a kid, we always had canned pineapple

A slice, served on a lettuce leaf, with a scoop of cottage cheese on top. That was dessert.

8. That actually sounds pretty good - and certainly healthy!

When I was really little, I had a lot of Golden Books. My aunt used to get me one every week when we went grocery shopping. I remember one that was a kind of cookbook for kids, featured the Campbell's Soup kids, I think, LOL. The only "recipe" I remember was something like that - a pineapple ring with half a banana placed in the pineapple hole and a cherry on top. Not exactly "cooking," but I thought it was...
