National Watermelon Day
What to Do on August 03 – National Watermelon Day
Are you ready to celebrate August 03 as National Watermelon Day? Come to think of it, there’s a number of interesting things that most of us don’t know about watermelons. Here are some of them:
- Watermelons are made up of 92 percent water.
- You can find 1,200 varieties of watermelons in 96 countries.
- Watermelons were first grown in South Africa.
- Bill Carson of Tennessee grew the largest watermelon in 1990. It weighed 262 lbs.
Enjoyed by many, watermelon is basically like a national summertime fruit/vegetable. From a simple slice that we eat straight up to fruit salads, sweet smoothies, and even spicy salsas, watermelons are known to make any hot summer day refreshing! Well, there’s a day set for its juicy goodness: August 03 – National Watermelon Day!
How to Celebrate National Watermelon Day
So how do we celebrate National Watermelon Day? Here are some suggestions you might enjoy!
#1 Go on a picnic!
Enjoy a day at the park with your loved ones and friends and pack some watermelon slices in your picnic basket! Not only will they be a refreshing addition to the spread, they will also look good for Instagram!
#2 Make Watermelon-Mint Cooler (or Cocktail)!
All you need are four cups of seedless watermelon chunks, a cup and a half of lemonade, and half a cup of fresh mint. You put the lemonade and the watermelon in a blender and puree and then you add the mint. There you go, a refreshing drink!
If you want it dirty, you can add a shot or two of vodka or tequila. Perfect for brunch, girls’ day or a night out or even on a summer date!
#3 Unleash your creativity!
On Halloween, we carve out pumpkins. On National Watermelon Day, we carve watermelons! It’s going to be fun for the family especially for kids because they can get creative and shape the watermelon into something else entirely!
#4 Help others!
Now, this is a non-conventional way of celebrating, and this definitely doesn’t need any watermelons—but this can be the thing that gives the most refreshing feeling of all! Countless people are battling breast cancer as we speak.
To some extent, most of them can’t even celebrate National Watermelon Day. To help fight the disease and even help save someone’s life, Breast Cancer Car Donations came up with multiple life-saving ways that aim for the following:
- Financial support to uninsured and underserved Americans who are battling with breast cancer
- Research funding for breast cancer treatment
- Support for breast cancer patients’ families and support systems
- Prevention, screening, and diagnosis of breast cancer
- Effective treatment and rehabilitation of men and women suffering from breast cancer
- Campaigns to raise public awareness of the causes, symptoms, prevention, and detection of breast cancer
