"May"-king Lemons into Lemonade
As many of you know, I love to take a look at the calendar and see what holidays or national days of observance might be coming up. I wasn’t disappointed when I began my search for the month of May!
The first Sunday in May (this year it happens to fall on May 1st, also known as May Day) is National Lemonade Day.
While this might seem like just one more silly thing to celebrate, the back-story is very cool. A man named Michael Holthouse initiated and founded National Lemonade Day in Houston, TX in an effort to allow youth in that city to learn how to run a small business, such as…a Lemonade Stand.

As the proud owner of an American small business, this is an effort I can fully support. Educating our nation’s youth on running a business and combining it with the ability to use their creativity is not only the cornerstone of our country but provides them the tools they can take with them into adulthood.
And from a more personal standpoint, what’s better than a cool glass of lemonade on a warm spring day?
