Vital and Verdant


Vital and Verdant
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)

V is for Vital and Verdant.

Today is Earth Day.

How will you celebrate this ecological and environmentally friendly event?

April 22nd is Jelly Bean Day too.

By the way, today is also National Jelly Bean Day. Regardless of where Easter may appear on the Christian calendar each year, April 22nd is always Jelly Bean Day. Rumor has it that this holiday dates back to the American Civil War (150 years ago), when folks would send jelly beans to soldiers.
