Food Holidays

Food Holidays, or Food Observances, focus on different types of foods throughout the year.  Here is a summary page listing of all the ones we have found so far - we'll look at each in depth and include recipes! You can now share YOUR Holiday Recipes on our new Holiday Recipes page!

Unfortunately, not all of the food days are for healthy foods, with many of them focused on desserts, cakes, candy, pies, cookies etc.  If there is a way to lighten things, Kerry from Healthy Diet Habits, will be providing tips for doing so!

Be sure to also check out our Holiday Drinks page and our Holiday Food Tips!

Food Holidays

Below, listed by month are the Food Holidays and Observances, that we are aware of so far. There may a few duplicates or incorrect dates, there may be some that we have left off that we will add as we find them, and there are some that are similar, but have different Sponsor Organizations that started the Observances, that may have different approaches and info. As we delve into all the details, we will fix any issues.

Ultimately, there will be a devoted page done for each of the different Food Holidays and Observances.  As pages are completed, they will be linked up below, as well as in our Daily Holiday pages, our Holidays by Month pages, and our Holidays and Observances Alphabetical Listing (page for each Letter of the Alphabet)
