Who would have thought that George Washington’s famous quote, “I cannot tell a lie. I chopped down the cherry tree.” could augment the popularity of cherry itself? With his birthday celebrated in February, merging with the Presidents’ Day makes a great coincidence too.
Well, that may present a superb reason for United States to be celebrating Cherry Pie Day every 20th of February. Although cherry pie may be second popular after apple pie. Nevertheless, cherry pie takes the fame crown for this month. In addition to that, people prefer their pies made from morello cherry because of its sour taste, which they love to sweeten on their own. Hence, the kind of sweet and sour taste that seemingly reflects on life itself.
