It's Cherry Pie Day! Cherry pie is America's second most popular pie, behind only apple pie in popularity. However, in the month of February, it's Number 1. As a young boy, George Washington made the cherry tree popular, with his famous quote "I cannot tell a lie, I chopped down the cherry tree." We celebrate George Washington's Birthday and President's Day in February. Appropriately, it's traditional to bake cherry pies in honor of the occasion. On Cherry Pie Day, celebrate with a piece of pie.
