National Food Days are a close second when it comes to celebrating a particular day or month of the year.

Second, only, of course, to a loved one’s birthday. Honestly, I guess it depends on how important to you those people are. I can think of a few people in my family where a National Chocolate Cake Day may beat their celebration.

It’s a double win if your birthday falls on one of your favorite food days.

In my case, I lucked out. My birthday and National Grilled Cheese Day happen to be one and the same, April 12th.

How do you celebrate your favorite national food holidays, and does your birthday fall on a National Food Day?
