  • Read the story ""Jack and the Beanstalk"" to your pre-schooler.
  • Teachers can use bean seeds for learning exercises in course material.
  • Others, can bone up on the history of beans....doesn't that sound like fun!?

Origin of Bean Day:

Paula Bowen is the originator of Bean Day. She started it because January is so bleak, and there weren't many holidays in January to celebrate. She said we needed a holiday to celebrate Mr. Bean. Also, her dad was a Pinto bean farmer, so she grew up eating a lot of beans.

There are many ""Bean Days"" referenced on the internet. They are primarily from local farming communities celebrating the harvest of the bean crop. There is no one date for these numerous local events. Local declarations do not seem to concentrate in any one month. Nor, are they often referred to as an annual event.
