National Noodle Ring Day
When : Always December 11
National Noodle Ring Day is a December day that kids young and old have been impatiently awaiting......yeah, right!
What would cooking be like without the noodle ring? We shudder to think about it. We are certainly relieved that the Noodle Ring exists, so we can cook them in one recipe after another. And, doesn't it make sense that we honor the Noodle Ring with its own very special day!?
BTW: Is the proper term "Noodle Ring" or "Ring Noodle"? We will let you make the call on this important question.
Get your fill of noodle rings today. After all, that's what this day is for.
Origin of National Noodle Ring Day:
We noodled around for a long time, trying to find information on National Noodle Ring Day. We found absolutely no information on this very special day. (Wow, what a surprise!)
There was some reference to this as a "National Day". Most food related holidays are called "National". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
