National I Love Honey Day

Today – December 18 – is National “I Love Honey Day”. I’m not sure whose idea this one is, but it’s a good one. America should have a national honey day – it’s the world’s largest honey customer. Maybe it should be extended to a full month. Iceland, of course, has a National Honey Week, as you can see in this video.

I used to sport a T-shirt that invited people to “Eat Your Honey Everyday” but then I realized that folks who saw me wearing it didn’t always get the beekeeping connection. Anyway, please celebrate National I Love Honey Day by devouring some floral honey today. You probably won’t regret it.

    Your t-shirt dilemma made me smile. I happen to have a (mostly eaten) jar of Icelandic honey and it’s rather nice. Pale and creamy. So some honey is produced in Iceland!
