accepted do Higgs Bosons happen in nature all the time? Rarely? Or do they only happen when the Higgs field is excited in a particle accelerator?

"taking some liberties", no worries there. I just want to make sure my understanding is accurate, not simplified. Based on what you've said, it sounds like the Higgs Boson doesn't really "do" anything when it comes to imparting mass. It's all the Higgs field. Thanks for the answer
