In Honor of “Make Up Your Own Holiday Day” – A Giveaway!

In case you haven’t yet noticed, I like to make note of a wide array of food holidays. No really, it’s true—just take a quick peek to the left of this post and you’ll see a box titled “FOOD HOLIDAYS: WEEK OF …

Some of the holidays seem to make absolutely perfect sense (like National Chocolate Chip Day, celebrated on May 15th) while others are a bit on the bizarre side of life (“Eat Outside Day” on August 31st when, typically, it’s hotter than the surface of the sun outdoors in most parts of the country…). It’s in this block of text that I list, on a weekly basis, said food holidays that are floating around out there in the foodisphere. And wouldn’t you know it … tomorrow, March 26th, is a special day indeed for one very important reason: It allows for the celebration of whatever the heck holiday you want!

March 26th is “Make Up Your Own Holiday Day!”

This makes me buzz with excitement because I have a whole slew of things I could morph into holidays. However, with this being a food-centric blog, quite naturally I feel compelled to keep things food related around these parts. Having said that, Bon Vivant would love to find out what food-related holiday you would choose to celebrate on March 26th. It’s all in fun, and you could win your choice of two food-related books:

"Around the World in Eighty Meals" by Nan Lyons

“Around the World in Eighty Meals” by Nan Lyons


"The Meat Free Monday Cookbook" with forward by Paul, Stella & Mary McCartney

“The Meat Free Monday Cookbook” with forward by Paul, Stella & Mary McCartney

You have until the last second of March 26th, 11:59 PM Eastern Time, to enter – a little over 27 hours from start to finish (told you it was a quickie).

  1. Can the holiday be a week long? How cool would that be? National Kibbles ‘n Bits Day, not for me but for my 2 dogs. Hey, it’s food, just not people food.


  2. PBJ Sandwich Day, Takes me back to when I was a child. I could feel like a kid all day with that one.


  3. I’d make National Caramelized Onions Day … who don’t like onions? shame on you if you don’t.
