A very delicious holiday is held on the first Sunday of May – Lemonade Day. Lemonade is prepared on this day in many homes in America. The purpose of the holiday is not only enjoying a delicious drink but also teaching children how to earn money.
The festival was first held in 2007. Lisa, daughter of American Michael Holthouse, asked to buy a turtle. There were a lot of animals at home, so her father refused. Lisa sold lemonade to earn money for her new pet.
Michael supported his daughter’s idea by proposing the creation of National Lemonade Day and giving children the opportunity to earn money. According to the American, this will help teach the child financial literacy, responsibility, and independence. On the first Sunday in May, children sell delicious homemade drinks on the streets, and passers-by are happy to buy it.
Lemonade children make and sell differs from soda sold in stores.
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice, water and sugar – this is traditional lemonade, delicious and healthy.
