Food Day Celebrations

VAV!/December 14, 2014 There's always something to celebrate because there's a food holiday every day of the year. In other words..."We are standing at the precipice of glorious food or drink celebrations daily!"  Not all food holidays have political, cultural or religious beginnings either. Nor, do local, state or federal offices close in honor of them... although, that is a nice thought.  The below food holidays include days, listed among the meaningful, that have been drummed up by people who are passionate about their favorite foods or who just plain want to sell their food products. Get ready for your ears to ring and your stomach to quivver in anticipation...   January January 2 -National Buffet week/National Creampuff DayJanuary 3 -National Chocolate Covered Cherry DayJanuary 19 -National Popcorn DayJanuary 20 -Cheese DayJanuary 23 -National Pie DayJanuary 24 -National Peanut Butter DayJanuary 27 -National Chocolate Cake Day
