Daughter Sara bought me an intriguing calendar this year, "Every day's a Holiday!" Perhaps Sara thought I needed a reason to celebrate something each and every day. I do like a good party! Or maybe she thought it's for busy people who only have enough time each day to read something only a paragraph long. Busy is my middle name! Or I wonder if Sara thought it would give me inspiration for my blog posts. Whatever the reason, it's funny and quirky. Maybe that's why Sara thought of me?
Ahhh, popcorn! I have not found any information or documentation to confirm this is a true "National" day, but why shouldn't this popular snack be recognized? The average American eats 17 gallons of popcorn a year. As a whole, America eats 4.3 billion gallons of popcorn a year, so is it any surprise that this tasty treat has its own day?
Frito Pie Popcorn
Toss 12 cups hot popcorn, 6 tablespoons melted butter, 4 cups Fritos (or other corn chips) and 2 tablespoons chili powder. Spread on baking sheets. Top with 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and 2 chopped scallions. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese melts, 3 minutes. Season with salt.

Or try Three Cheese Popcorn.
Hard to believe, but if you're not in the mood for popcorn, it's also "National Tin Can Day." Now that's a reason to celebrate. Bring on the party!
