History and Origin of Pick Strawberries Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day.
Many internet websites call this National Be a Millionaire Day. We found a congressional resolution supporting a Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. But we found no documentation in congressional records to confirm that this is truly a national day. Nor, did we find a presidential proclamation.
