Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day is one of the funniest and cutest holidays ever. It allows you to disinterestedly share the zucchini harvest with your neighbor. This helps to get rid of an excess of vegetables, too.
The homeland of zucchini is Mexico, but for a long time only the seeds were consumed there. In Europe, zucchini was used as a food by the 18th century – first in Italy. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the zucchini remained unpopular, but gradually found more and more recognition. For a long time, it did not bring such large yields that it could be shared with a neighbor, but breeders changed this.
It is not known when this holiday appeared, but it was invented by Thomas Roy. Thomas also owns the idea of National No Socks Day – apparently, he has a specific sense of humor.
- Dark-skinned zucchini has more useful trace elements than light-skinned ones.
- Zucchini flowers are also edible – as, by the way, are many other flowers.
- Zucchini stimulates the digestive system, reduces blood pressure in hypertension, prevents kidney and liver diseases, and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system.
- Zucchini has a lot of potassium – even more than bananas.
How to take part
The meaning of the holiday is described as specifically as possible in its name: discrepancies are unlikely to arise here. The main thing is to throw a zucchini discreetly so that your neighbor does not know who put it on their porch. When they appear on their doorstep, you can spy on them and admire their puzzled face to your heart’s content. However, if a neighbor guesses who shared the zucchini with them, perhaps they will return the favor.
