Whether it’s Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham or even birthday cake, food is a big part of human celebrations – or at least it was on Earth.

Turns out it’s a big deal here, too.

Now, I don’t pretend to know all of the Abydonian holidays yet, but I remember this one.

It’s some sort of harvest festival, but no matter how many times I try to learn its actual name, I somehow always manage to mangle it. So, to me, it’s bean day.

Yes, God help me, I call it bean day.

Because seriously, I never knew you could make so many different things from beans.

Granted, only one kind of bean grows well here (don’t ask me how), but people make the most of it. We’ve got baked beans, fried beans, raw beans, whole beans, bean casseroles, what looks like bean dip, and heaven knows what else.

Most of the dishes are good. A few are wonderful and the rare one is terrible. But all of them are beans. All beans, all the time.

So, yeah. Sorry, Skarra. You can tell me again and again what this holiday is called, but it’s always going to be bean day to me.
