National Food Holidays

Posted Feb 12 2013 9:27pm

Before anything, I cannot thank you all enough for the sincere and supportive comments that you left me on yesterday’s post .  It was very relieving for me to put my thoughts into words and I hope y’all learned a bit more about the human digestive system…  Totally kidding, I’m not a doctor but I do know how to read [the papers the doctor gave me] ;)

I stumble on this picture today and felt the need to share, to lighten the mood ya know…  True life.

Did y’all hear the rumor that today is National Pancake Day?  I could have sworn we just celebrated this holiday?  After doing some good old Google research, I was reminded that we certainly did celebrate National Pancake Day on February 5th…

In many countries around the world, Fat Tuesday itself — which falls on Feb. 12 this year — is just known as Pancake Day. It comes just before the start of Lent, the annual Christian season of penance and fasting, which is as good a reason as any to get out the syrup and chow down. In the U.K., the tradition of making and eating flapjacks on Fat Tuesday goes back to the Middle Ages, when religious folks abstained from dairy, eggs and meat from Ash Wednesday until Easter. In many other European nations, including Sweden and Poland, the day is celebrated by making the most sugary, fatty pastries possible — usually a form of pancakes. [ source ]

So with oh so many tasty holiday’s occurring on the regular, I took it upon myself to color code a 12-month food calendar for you.  Please note that I chose just a few holidays per month based upon a) some of my favorite eats and b) that made me giggle.  Plenty more holidays exist.  Enjoy!
