Daily Holidays -April 2

National Peanut Butter And 
Jelly Day National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day is celebrated annually on April 2nd.. This food holiday is a classic favorite of many. The average American will have eaten over 2000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate from high school.

Peanut butter was considered a delicacy in the early 1900′s and was only served in New York City’s finest tea rooms. In a May 1896 article published in the Good Housekeeping magazine, a recipe “urged homemakers to use a meat grinder to make peanut butter and spread the result on bread”. That same year, in June, the culinary magazine Table Talk, published a “peanut butter sandwich recipe”.

It is thought to be that the first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread, to be published in the United States, was by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901. In the late 1920′s the price of peanut butter declined and the sandwich became very popular with children.

According to the Peanut Board, during World War II, both peanut butter and jelly were part of the United States soldiers military ration list. http://nationaldaycalendar.com/days-2/national-peanut-butter-and-jelly-day-april-2/

National Love Your Produce Manager Day Produce managers play an important part in changing the way America shops—and eats—and, according to a recent survey by Packaged Facts, three out of four shoppers choose where they shop based on the produce department.

As featured in Chase’s Calendar of Events since 2012, Love Your Produce Manager Day aims to honor exemplary customer service in U.S. supermarket produce departments. This year, the event will be recognized on Thursday, April 2.

Reconciliation Day Reconciliation Day is an annual holiday that celebrates the bond between black and white South Africans. The day originally commemorated two different events. For members of South Africa’s Afrikaner community, it celebrated the Boer victory over the Zulus at the Battle of Blood River in 1838. By contrast, for black South Africans, the day was significant as the anniversary of the founding of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the anti-Apartheid African National Congress.

Both of the dates commemorate part of a history of violence between the black and white communities. After the end of Apartheid, however, the government made the day into a celebration of the end of that conflict. Reconciliation Day acknowledges that violence but forges the two separate holidays into a single holiday that unites the whole of the South African people.

Reconciliation Day was first celebrated by the South African people in 1995. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/reconciliation-day/
