You see, some people celebrate it (if they celebrate it at all) on his birthday.
Johnny Appleseed was born September 26, 1774.
But the March 11th date is a preference to many because of it's proximity to the planting season.
Any ideas on how you would celebrate Johnny Appleseed? How about a Blog Post?
Here are some ideas to blog:
- What's your first memory of learning about Johnny Appleseed?
- What about Johnny Appleseed makes him an American hero in your eyes, his creation of the modern apple, his generous spirit, his missional attitude?
- Do you think Johnny Appleseed is under or over rated (aka do you think the "holiday" should be acknowledged, or does the sheer idea make you laugh)?
