National Blonde Brownie Day
When : Always January 22nd
National Blonde Brownie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and eat blonde brownies.
What's a blonde brownie, you ask? Well, as their name implies, traditional brownies are a dark brown. To make blonde brownies, light brown sugar is used in the recipe in place of dark brown chocolate. At first I thought it was because a blonde forgot to put in some ingredients!
On National Blonde Brownie Day, its your right and responsibility to bake blonde brownies, and to eat them. If you don't have time to bake today, buy some and eat a few extra blonde brownies.
Note: The use of nuts and frosting on your brownies is optional.
Origin of National Blonde Brownie Day:
Our extensive research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Perhaps it was someone who wanted a different colored brownie. Perhaps it was a food company. We may never know.
If we ever find the originator, we have one question to ask: "Just what was wrong with regular brownies!?!"
There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.
This Day in History:
January 22 A historic Supreme Court decision in Roe vs. Wade legalizes abortion. (1973)
