Today is National Watermelon Day!

National Watermelon DayWatermelon Facts

  • Explorers once used watermelons as canteens.
  • Watermelon is 92% water!
  • By weight, watermelon is the most-consumed melon in the U.S., followed by cantaloupe and honeydew.
  • Not only does it quench your thirst, it can also assuage inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.
  • Every part of the watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds.
  • In China and Japan, watermelon is a popular gift to bring a host.
  • Watermelon is an ideal health food because it doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol, is high in fiber and vitamins A & C, and is a great source of potassium.

If you happen to know someone who has an obsession with this summertime treat, be sure to visit Edible Arrangements and order the Watermelon Kiwi Summer Bouquet. If you use promo code FREE1229, you’ll also get 12 FREE dipped strawberries!

Here’s to a great weekend eating lots of watermelon!

5 Things We Can Learn From Kids About Life

Kids rock.then_now

Have you ever volunteered or worked with kids? If not, you’re missing out because you can stand to learn a lot. If you have, then you can probably relate to this blog post. This post is dedicated to all the kids who taught me a thing or two about life.

And yes, that’s me to the right.

 

Agree to Disagree

Everyone wants to be right, and no one wants to be wrong. Growing up, I was taught never to discuss politics or religion, but it seems that both of these topics are nearly impossible to escape. The awesome thing about kids is that they can “debate” almost any topic and by the end, they’re hugging it out and sharing a Ring Pop. As adults, we could stand to do the same (sans sharing of Ring Pop).

Don’t Take Yourself (or life) Too Seriously

Elbert Hubbard said it best:

“Don’t take life too seriously. No one makes it out alive anyway.”

Kids laugh at pretty much everything. As adults, we should probably try laughing a bit more, but not at inappropriate times because that’s just weird. Because awkward turtle.

Get Dirty

Splash in puddles. Get grass stains on your jeans. Eat spaghetti without a fork. Make a mess. Kids love doing it, so who says adults can’t do it too? Go ahead and be a kid again. Let loose and run around with your diaper around your ankles (in the privacy of your own home, of course)!

Treat Everyone Equally

It’s pretty awesome how kids will become friends with everything. People, pets, friends of the imaginary persuasion, and all sorts of inanimate objects all get the same kind of treatment… and it’s one of respect. Wi-fi high fives to all the kids out there for not being prejudiced and accepting everyone and everything (no matter how strange) for who they are.

No high fives to the adults who teach children to be prejudiced. You suck.

Share

Boogers. Ring Pops. A hug just because. No matter what it is, kids like to share what they have. Can you imagine a world where all the big kids shared with others? Something tells me we’d no longer have to worry about hunger and homelessness. Kids are definitely on to something. We should probably just quit our jobs and follow their lead.

If you’ve learned a lesson from a kid, feel free to share your experience by commenting below!
