May we Suggest:
Origin of National Celery Month:
This special event seems to have started around 2015. There is very little written about it. We did not find the author or any information describing the origin, or reasons for establishing this special month.
It also seems strange to have National Celery Month in March. The gardening season has yet to begin, and the home garden harvest of long growing celery is several months away. We did not find any historic event in March where celery had any involvement. We did not find any presidential proclamations or acts of Congress making this a true "National' celebration.
Note: We also discovered just a small handful of references to "National Celery Day" in July, and just one reference in March. There were so few references, that further research seemed futile at this point.
