There is plenty of documentation to support claims for Johnny Appleseed Day on March 11th and on September 26th. We found no one who claims to have created this special day. Enjoy an apple and use #JohnnyAppleseedDay to post on social media.

So, here's the skinny on the two dates:

- John Chapman was born on September 26, 1774. This date is undisputed.

- It is believed he died on March 11, 1845. However, his date was not formally recorded and the date of death is disputed.

Here is how we come out on the debate: This day should be celebrated on the day of his birth. His birth date is undisputed. His birthday coincides with the season of the apple harvest. A birth is a more positive day than a death.  We think Johnny would agree.

Johnny Appleseed Day honors one of America's great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. John Chapman was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he planted apple trees along the way, and sold trees to settlers. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.

There is a lot of "legend" in stories written about Johny Appleseed. By it's definition, over the years, legends grow bigger than life. It also appears that there is some link between Johny Appleseed and very early Arbor Day celebrations.
