Food Holidays

Food Calendar 2013 ~ Food Holidays

Who designates “national” food days?

“National” observances (months, weeks, days) in the USA are determined by three sources:

  1. Presidential proclamation…promoting national interests (Thanksgiving, National School Lunch Week)
  2. Industry/trade associations…promoting member products (National Sandwich Month, National Pie Day)
  3. Source unknown…sounds good, historically feasible, sells copy (National Sandwich Day)

    I ran across your site while doing a search on what day today was. Each morning my wife and I spend an hour or two first thing in the morning relaxing and surfing the web looking up unusual pieces of trivia and/or news. I don’t remember the last time I actually bookmarked a site though because it was interesting. Thank you! You made our day! Sincerely, Jeff & Renee

  8. It sounds so interesting before this I have no idea about food holidays and I was surprised too. And I think it will help me a lot  because my kids hate vegetables and they avoiding the food which includes vegetable. If I am using this chart I hope my kids also support me. Thanks for sharing this valuable information with us.

  9. I love Nov 12 – National Pizza with Everything Day (except anchovies)! That really made me smile. Found you via Twitter and am now following via email too!
