National Food Holidays
Happy National Brown-Bag-It Day, everyone!! No, I'm not joking.
Today really is National Brown-Bag-It Day! And did you know that there's a national food holiday for almost every day of the year?
For example, January 16th is National Fig Newton Day.
March 29th is National Turkey Neck Soup Day. ( Ick.)
July 18th is National Caviar Day. (Another ick.)
September 14th is National Cream-filled Donut Day. (Now that's more like it.)
And November 6th is National Nachos Day, just to name a few.
We have had so much fun with this! My children especially love knowing which food holiday their birthday is on. :)
Now, we don't "observe" all these holidays, but we do as many as we can. And my children love looking at the list (which I print for the current month and post it in the school room), and seeing which food is being honored on that day.
So how did I land the info about all these holidays? A friend of mine gave the website for it.
Once you're there, scroll down to "American Food Holidays", and there's where you'll find the list.
