Green, red, dark red, kidney, lima, soy and etc. are just a few of the different kinds of beans that are recognized and celebrated on National Bean Day which is every year on January 6.

Paula Bowen is the originator of Bean Day. She started it because January is so bleak, and there weren't many holidays in January to celebrate. She said we needed a holiday to celebrate Mr. Bean. Also, her dad was a Pinto bean farmer, so she grew up eating a lot of beans.

National Bean Day

There are many "Bean Days" referenced on the internet. They are primarily from local farming communities celebrating the harvest of the bean crop. There is no one date for these numerous local events. Local declarations do not seem to concentrate in any one month. Nor, are they often referred to as an annual event.

Every once in a while, you come across a special day that just doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason. Bean Day appears to be one of those days. Bean Day is day of unknown origin, and unknown cause. But, this day gets plenty of recognition from Ecard companies and calendar oriented sites.   


There are several ways to celebrate Bean Day:

- Newlyweds can add a few beans to their bean jar today.

- Gardeners can enjoy this day surfing through seed catalogs to select beans to grow in the spring.

- Read the story "Jack and the Beanstalk" to your pre-schooler.

- Teachers can use bean seeds for learning exercises in course material.

- Others, can bone up on the history of beans....doesn't that sound like fun!?
