Celebrate these awesome August food holidays!
From National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day to National Cherry Popsicle Day, August is a delicious month, indeed!
Just where do all these national holidays (also referred to as "holidates" or "hashtag holidays") come from?
Many of them date back to the World War era, and were developed as lighthearted ways to honor a certain food tradition, season, or to boost sales. Many of the more recent food holidays, however, were invented by John-Bryan Hopkins, a food writer from Birmingham, Alabama, and founder of the popular website Foodimentary.
According to Hopkins, even though he made up many of the holidays, he says nobody seems to care because everyone loves a reason (even a silly one) to celebrate, eat delicious food, and share recipes. Here at Delicious Living, we’re no exception.
Read on and celebrate with us all month long!
