10 Fun Ways to Celebrate National Eat a Cranberry Day!

National Eat a Cranberry Day

What is National Eat a Cranberry Day? Well, Eat a Cranberry Day is meant to get people to eat cranberries which are good for you!  It is celebrated on November 23rd of each year.

We can’t get enough of cranberries. We love them cooked into cranberry sauce, used in infused water and baked into yummy desserts. Here’s what you may not know about cranberries though: they are found in bogs! Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs that can grow up to 7 feet long and 8 inches high. Wisconsin produces over half of the United States production! Studies have shown that eating cranberries may have anti-aging effects.

We can’t think of a better day than today to EAT A CRANBERRY! Here are some ways we came up with to celebrate the day. Be sure to check out the other fun and wacky November holidays you can celebrate with us!
