Celebrated every year on January 6


Bean Day is on the same day as the dying day of Gregor Mendel who specialized in genetics and did many experiments with all kinds of legumes.
His findings contributed to making cool hybrids with plants which is a very basic way of genetic engineering without directly altering genes like in scary science fiction books that made many people scared of doing science.
Most of the food we eat has been genetically engineered this way without us even realizing it.

Celebrate with baked beans, chili, hummus, peas and carrots or whatever you like!
Did you know that peanuts are actually also a kind of bean?
