Happy Popcorn Lover’s Day! Today is a great day – many of us love popcorn. Today is the day to pop yourself some – maybe even share it with a friend. When eaten just plain (like Bacon likes it), it can be good for you. It’s all the extras that the humans like to add to it like buttery, salt, maybe some pepper flakes, cheddar cheese, or barbeque flakes. Do you add anything to your corn?
.How do your humans make popcorn? In the microwave, over the oven the old fashioned way or do they have a ‘popcorn maker’? However they make it, tell them to make extra to share with you. I know Bacon will have his share today.
And do you know the origin of Popcorn Lover’s Day? This day was created on January 6, 2012 by Bob Matthews of Rochester, New York. It was he and his wife’s favorite snack and they have it on most Thursdays. Thus, Popcorn Lover’s Day is celebrated always on the second Thursday of March.
