Happy Candy Month…

by Patricia on June 2, 2009 · 3 comments

Who comes up with these things? It seems like every month or every day has some special designation.  June it so-happens is National Candy Month. Why June? Because they said so. Who am I to disagree?  And so I have been celebrating with peanut butter M&Ms. And plain M&Ms…

M & M's

But then to keep us on our toes, June is also National Fruit and Vegetable Month, Dairy Month, Iced Tea Month, and Turkey Lovers Month (reference: butlerwebs).  I’m skeptical of how widely celebrated any of these “holidays” are since I only get a few random hits when I do a search on Google for any of these. But they sound fun anyway.  I’m definitely celebrating Candy Month (with M&Ms as mentioned before, and also I am reading Candy Freak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America by Steve Almond.  I’m about halfway through, and so far it’s been interesting. And Steve Almond definitely has a distinct voice in his writing which is entertaining if nothing else).

And just to keep things balanced, I’m going to try to celebrate Fruit and Vegetable month or at least Eat Your Vegetables Day on June 17.
