Here at Refreshingly Riki we can find almost any reason to celebrate, and today we are rejoicing in National Cream-Filled Donut Day! A warm donut filled with creamy goodness is one of life’s little pleasures, and it is only fitting that there would be a holiday to honor its yummy goodness.
Celebrating a day dedicated to a food got me thinking about what other foods deserve a holiday. Refreshingly Riki did a post back on July 29th celebrating National Cheese Sacrifice Purchase Day, but I really think cheese deserves its own holiday unrelated to the sacrifice it might be used for. I’m a huge fan of cheese from authentic French to artificial American and would be all for a day in its honor.
If we’re talking about foods that deserve celebration, we cannot leave out cake. I’m also a big fan of cake, from carrot to ice cream, or anything in between. Not only is it delicious, it usually is eaten in celebration of a person’s big day. Since cake has been so hard-working in celebrating others for so long, it has certainly earned a day dedicated to celebration of itself.
Don’t forget to stop by your local donut shop and celebrate today’s featured food. It’s a day to enjoy a cream-filled donut!
What are your favorite foods, and why do they deserve their own holiday?
