National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day – Third Saturday in July

NATIONAL STRAWBERRY RHUBARB WINE DAY

The registrar of National Day Calendar has designated the third Saturday in July of each year as National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day.  This day celebrates the smooth and fruity taste you will find in a glass full of delicious, chilled, Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.  

In July of 2010, Maple River Winery in historic downtown Casselton, North Dakota, proudly accepted the Double Gold Award at the Indy International Wine Competition for it’s Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.

  • Rhubarb, although known as a tart fruit to most, is actually a vegetable and when combined with strawberries has a unique flavor that some consider the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness.   It was decided in a New York court in 1947 that since rhubarb was used in the United States as a fruit, that it was to be counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.

NATIONAL CAVIAR DAY

July 18th celebrates National Caviar Day.

Caviar is known as a seafood delicacy.  However, in simple terms, caviar is basically Sturgeon fish eggs.  There are several species of Sturgeon fish.  As a result, the caviar produced varies in colors based upon the species.  Caviar is full of protein and vitamins making the delicacy a healthy meal.  

The United States was the leading distributor of caviar around the year 1900 producing over 600 tons a year.  However, because of the vast amount of Sturgeon fish killed for the caviar, a ban was put in place to protect the Sturgeon fish from becoming extinct.  Thus, resulting in expensive prices of caviar!

The origins of National Caviar Day, an “unofficial” National holiday, is unclear.

TOSS AWAY THE “COULD HAVES” AND “SHOULD HAVES” DAY

Across the United States, the third Saturday in July of each year recognizes Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day.  

Created by author and motivational speaker Martha J. Ross-Rodgers, this day is intended for all to let go of the past and live for the present.  To help with this venture, find a paper and pen, write down your “could haves” and “should haves” and then through it away.

Once you have thrown your “could haves” and “should haves” in the trash, make the following resolution:

“From this day forward, I choose not to live in the past, the past is history that I can not change.  I can do something about the present, I choose to live in the present.”

Now….. take care of yourself and your health by living for now, do your best and make the best of each and every day!

To celebrate, let go of the things things that have been burdening you and live in the now. Post on social media using #TossAwayTheCouldHavesAndShouldHavesDay to encourage others to join in.
