National Garlic Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on April 19
National Garlic Day promotes the many uses of Garlic. And, there certainly are many uses. It's a vegetable. It's a herb. It is used in recipes around the world. Native to Asia, garlic has been used medicinally for thousands of years. And, Garlic is believed to ward off evil spirits. What's Halloween without a strand of garlic around your neck, to keep the vampires away? About the only negative thing you can say about garlic, is that it can negatively affect an otherwise romantic evening. And, that's not a problem, if the both of you eat garlic.
As a medicinal herb:
Celebrate National Garlic Day by using it heavily in your meals and snacks today. Spend some time researching its medical benefits. You might find you are adding more garlic to your menu everyday.
