May celebrations!

It may still be cool and breezy, but the flowers are blooming and summer’s on the way. There are a lot of celebrations this month. For example, Mother’s day is coming up, and my colleague Karen has a great post about that below. But did you know about some of the other May celebrations and holidays? Have a quiz! In May, we celebrate:

A. National Hamburger month

B. National Wildflower month

C. National Blueberry Month

D. National Salad Month

E. National Barbecue Month

Actually, we celebrate everything on that list except for Blueberry month (that’s July. May is Strawberry month). And we’ve got books to help you plan your picnics and barbecues. Here are just a few titles from our cooking section.
