The New Date for National Garden Hose Day Is June 22
Be advised that National Garden Hose Day, which has been celebrated on August 3 since its inception, has been moved to June 22. Although event officals did not give a reason for the change, many suspect that it was occasioned by a marked decline in interest for the holiday last year. In fact, one of the event’s coordinators, who wishes to remain anonymous, said that there has always been some concern about the late-summer date. “By August,” he said, “people are tired of their lawns, tired of their gardens, and tired of garden hoses. It just makes sense to move the date up a bit.”
