It's National Honeybee Day!

That's right, folks. More specifically, National Honeybee Awareness Day -- the most important holiday of the year.
For beekeepers.

Anyway, I'll bet you didn't even know there was a national holiday for bees. For shame. Do you think mothers and Valentines are more important than our pollinating friends? Well, do ya? Punk?

If you haven't heard about it, that could be because the first National Honeybee Awareness Day was only last year. It was formally recognized by the Secretary of Agriculture in August of 2009 and is a day promoted to the advancement of beekeeping and the awareness of environmental concerns in general. Good stuff.

Want to know more? Here's the official National Honeybee Awareness Day website.

Now get out there and hug a bee.
