Daily Holidays - November 23

National Eat A Cranberry Day Found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler regions of the northern hemisphere, cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs, or trailing vines, that grow up to 7 ft. long and 8 in. high. Their stems are slender and wiry, and they have small evergreen leaves.

National Cashew Day The cashew nut is a seed that is harvested from the cashew tree. Northeastern Brazil was the original native home to the cashew tree however, it is now widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew apples and nuts.

National Espresso Day (/ɛˈsprɛsoʊ/; Italian pronunciation: [eˈsprɛsso]) is coffee brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso is generally thicker than coffee brewed by other methods, has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids, and has crema on top (a foam with a creamy consistency). As a result of the pressurized brewing process, the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of espresso are very concentrated.
