May 20th is World Bee Day

Post by +Colibri »

Thanks to successful lobbying by our country, May 20th has been accepted as the World Bee Day and has been celebrated since 2018.

Bees are a big thing here, many people keep them as a hobby.
Official website: https://www.gov.si/en/registries/projec ... d-bee-day/

Short informative video about beekeeping.

(correction about a piece of info from the video: they mention that 1 in 20 people are beekeepers by profession. The actual number is 5 beekeepers per 1000 people, and I think most of them are doing it as a hobby).

There's even a 2 EUR coin with a beehive theme. I got this coin once, but when visiting the next store they had no change so I had to spend it right away. But they're not very rare.
