National Bean Day!

National Bean Day is January 6th! Celebrating this unique holiday is super easy.  All you need to do is eat all the amazing beans that come in various sizes and shapes.  According to Huffington Post’s story last year on this National Bean Day Holiday, it exists because of Gregor Mendel, who famously used bean and pea plants to test his theories on inheritance. Mendel died on this day in 1884, according to FoodReference.com. We decided to have a little fun with this holiday and create you a Bean Day Infographic.  Feel free to pin and share!
