Did you know that the third Wednesday in April is Banana Day? How did that happen?

Bananas are such a popular fruit that one day in 1996, a university student decided that the humble banana should get its own special celebration. Banana Day was born and since then, every year the university has used this day to not only celebrate this amazing fruit, but also to give out free bananas (over 10,000 a year!) and spread the word about this tasty and healthy treat.

What a fabulous way to celebrate the banana. So we wish you a happy Banana Day!
