MARCH FOOD HOLIDAYS {food calendar}

AND IT’S NOT JUST ALL-GREEN FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY

If you think about it, almost every holiday we know somehow incorporates food — from the very obvious dinner that is the Thanksgiving holiday (Thursday November 23 this year), to the breakfast-in-bed and brunches that start every Mother’s Day holiday (Sunday May 14 this year), to, say, really stretching here, croissants and Champagne for Bastille Day holiday (July 14).

With these regular holidays on our calendars almost every month, sometimes two a month, we think you don’t need more excuses to bust out with special, celebratory food. But the fact is, there is indeed at least one, probably two, and sometimes three, food-only holidays every single day of the year to celebrate any given food. Today? White Chocolate Cheesecake Day (March 6). Tomorrow? Cereal Day (March 7).

And if there is a food you have special feelings for, if you search this Food Holiday Calendar, there is probably a day, maybe even a week, and in some very special cases, the entire month, somewhere on the calendar to celebrate it. Artichoke Hearts? All artichoke hearts, all day next Thursday, March 16.

We are taking a particular interest in this being National Nutrition Month. March is also, oxymoronically Frozen Food Month Not that we’re saying frozen food’s moronic…(more on that later).

Check out the March food “holidays” below, shareable google calendar format first, list format after.

And stay tuned, along with celebr-eating some of our favorite days this month, we have some fun things related to Nutrition and Noodles coming up!
