Apple Day - the history and script of the matinee
Perhaps many have heard about Halloween, Mother's Day, St. Valentine, which has long been celebrated not only in the UK, but also far beyond its borders. However, not everyone knows about such an interesting and “tasty” holiday as Apple Day, which is celebrated annually on October 21 in Britain.
Even in ancient times, the first apple trees were brought to the island of foggy Albion by the Romans. After that, they began to actively grow this crop and display new varieties. It is now quite difficult to imagine the UK without beautiful blooming apple and other orchards.
However, the creation of the European Union opened the English market for agricultural products of European countries, and the demand for local apples dropped sharply. It was then that, on the initiative of the British charitable organization Common Ground, in 1990, Apple Day was first organized in Great Britain. And although the holiday received the “apple” name, its goal is to support all domestic products of garden agriculture. The fruit itself has become a kind of symbol of the diversity of all world aspects and evidence that a person is able to independently influence his destiny (biblical Eve and the "forbidden fruit").
How is Apple Day celebrated in the UK?
Annually organized folk festivals with themed apple bias and elements of the fair. Perhaps this is the only day of the year, when not only citizens of the country, but any guest of foggy Albion have a unique opportunity to try over 1,200 different varieties of apples, most of which cannot be bought in stores.
Also, on Apple's Day holiday, everyone can purchase rare seedlings to grow them in their own garden or on the house plot. Beginner amateur gardeners will be able to get advice on issues of interest from leading apple growers for free.
On Apple's Day, chefs come to the places of major fair festivities who wish to demonstrate their culinary skills. And then the holidaymakers have the opportunity to try dozens of various apple dishes, both hot and cold. Particularly lucky can even get a couple of interesting recipes that will surprise their friends later. You can also take part in various interesting contests: archery at apples or peeling an apple (so that the peel is as long as possible).
World Apple Day
And although officially there is no such holiday, but the residents of the United States of America successfully picked up the “apple apple” from the subjects of the English crown. They only celebrate Apple Day on February 20th.
In the Russian Federation, Ukraine and other Slavic countries, the Harvest Day is annually celebrated, which rather closely resembles a British holiday. On this day, it is customary to hold fairs where you can buy agricultural products in a very profitable way and participate in fun contests.
