February is National Cherry Month in the US, celebrating two special cherry-related activities. National Cherry Month celebrates America’s founding and the cherry blossom tree’s of Washington DC.
George Washington’s birthday is one reason February is National Cherry Month. American folklore includes the urban legend of George Washington and the cherry tree, which shows his integrity. The narrative is crucial to American history, even though Mason Locke Weems fabricated it.
National Cherry Month also celebrates the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. The city celebrates cherry blossoms every year. The cherry blossom festival begins in late February, March, or early April and includes a street festival, fireworks, a lantern-lighting ceremony, live performances, cultural displays, food kiosks, artisan booths, and more.
Tokyo residents gave Washington, D.C. its cherry blossom trees. Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki gave the city 3,800 cherry blossom plants in 1912. Mayor Ozaki gave 70% Yoshino cherry trees, which blossom early.
The National Cherry Blossom Festival honors the U.S.-Japan alliance and celebrates cherry blossom trees. The event attracts millions of visitors from across the world, making it a must-see for nature, culture, and art lovers.
