National Popcorn Day

Saturday, January 19, 2013

National Popcorn Day

When : January 19th

The origins of this holiday are unknown. We have not found any information or documentation to confirm this is a true "National" day. But, don't let that pop (burst) your bubble, err pop your corn that is. It's a day to celebrate healthy (until you load it with salt and butter), and addicting popcorn.

Strangely, National Popcorn Day is in January, yet National Popcorn Month is October. According to tradition, it is celebrated on January 19th each year. There is some suggestion that Popcorn Day may, at one point, have been tied to the Superbowl. And, we found one reference to it being on January 31st.

On National Popcorn Day, we suggest you pop up some fresh popcorn, kick back and enjoy!

Also note that "Caramel Popcorn Day" is April 7th.

    I've come to the conclusion there is a day for just about anything.

I love popcorn. I put about 1/4 cup in a brown paper lunch sac, no oil. Stick it in the micro and listen for it to stop popping. What a great snack for just pennies!

  I worked in a movie theater for a year. All the popcorn and soda I could want. I've got no desire for popcorn these days. Took a lot longer to kick the soda habit.

    Thanks for letting me know about today. Going to my mom's house today and we always like to share popcorn and watch some tv together.
