I wonder how the grapes feel about this.

Back in my day, there wasn't a special day for everything under the sun. There was Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and International Pipe Smoking Day; just the really important stuff.

I was going to make a joke about National Raisin Day coming after National Grape Day but I couldn’t find one. There is National Grape Popsicle Day in May though
