Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: August 3 is National Watermelon Day

August 3 is National Watermelon Day

I do not know who started this or when they first named August 3, as ," National Watermelon Day ' I just read it in the carrier Pigeon , a monthly free magazine that I receive. Check out www.theuptightsuburbanite.com. It is interesting to see that they have something for each day of the month of August .

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

If you stop to just consider the watermelon. Its size, content and eatability. Amazing...Extra kudos to whoever named it too. Kept it simple enough
