The 21st of May is Strawberries ‘n Cream Day.
Depending on where you live, you may be able to celebrate today with fresh local strawberries, or if you’re somewhere in the southern hemisphere such as Australia, if you’re lucky maybe you’ll just catch the tail end of the local crop.
In whatever form you are able to enjoy them, treat yourself and a friend today!
The earliest print mention of a “Strawberries and Cream Day” that CooksInfo is aware of dates from 2015:
“National Strawberries and Cream Day, May 21st.” — Sangalang, Jennifer. ‘Faulidays’ seem to celebrate anything, everything (and that’s OK). Cocoa, Florida: Florida Today. 10 May 2015. Page E5, col 1.
The holiday was circulating on the Internet, though, since at least 2004, which is when CooksInfo first reported on it.
