When you’re having a bad day, or life is feeling kinda blah a great pick-me-up is to celebrate a weird holiday. There are holidays out there for EVERYTHING, because it’s super easy to declare a holiday (Check out the story behind Talk Like A Pirate Day, basically two dudes wanted to talk like pirates).
Since there are holidays for EVERYTHING, there are naturally ones that center around food. Some of these are sponsored by food associations or advocacy groups or appliance manufacturers. Some don’t seem to have any back-story whatsoever, but exist on the internet and are referenced on slow news days. I’ve started compiling a calendar of food holidays, including back-stories where I could find them, and recipes to help celebrate.
Everyone can use more reasons to celebrate. So pick a holiday and have fun!
