Happy Jelly Bean Day Greeting

It’s National Jelly Bean Day and Treetopia is ready to celebrate!

There isn’t any written history on how Jelly Bean Day began, let alone who started it. However, it has become a well-celebrated event that happens every April 22nd. According to Candy Favorites, the world first encountered jelly beans in 1861. A confectioner named William Schrafft made a batch for soldiers to munch on during the American Civil War. Many years after that, people began to associate these flavored sweets with Easter due to their egg-like shape. The rest, as they say, is history.

Based on your holiday décor preferences, we’ve put together a short quiz to determine which type of jelly bean you truly are. Get ready to find out!

A healthy combination of artificial and natural lighting can open up any space. During daytime, remove obstructions from your windows and entryways to maximize sunlight. Don’t rely on a single source of artificial light for nighttime illumination and opt to spread out multiple light sources around the room. Photography by Tessa Neustad.

Since President Coolidge started the tradition in 1923, the National Christmas tree lighting ceremony has embodied the country’s spirit. The ceremony is headed by the First Family and marks the beginning of the holiday season and the Pageant of Peace.
