A Blogger's Guide to National Days

A Blogger’s List of National Days

There’s a “National” day for EVERYTHING….we Americans LOVE celebrating!

As a blogger it seems like I’m always behind on knowing exactly when National days are….you know what I mean….like National Tortellini Day (it’s February 13th!) or National Fried Chicken Day (July 6th) or even National Ice Cream Day (July 19th)!  With so many “National” days it’s a lot to keep up with!

I feel like everyone knows about these secret “National” days except for me….I usually realize it’s about to be National Chocolate Chip Cookie day like 3 days before hand thanks to Pinterest…..I mean what on Earth would we do without Pinterest….how would we ever know what “National” day it is?! 😉

So, for those of you a little lost like me, I have compiled a list of the most popular “National” days…that way you can be prepared as well! 🙂  Amazingly enough….we REALLY REALLY REALLY love to celebrate food!

 

January

So January is choked full of “National” fun….it’s National Bath Safety Month, National Oatmeal Month, National Hot Tea Month, and National Soup Month!  Who knew January was packed full of so much more than just New Year’s Resolutions!
