National Bagel Day
Date When Held : Event is always January 15
There's a special day to celebrate donuts, so it only makes sense that there should be a special day to give recognition to Bagels. Fortunately for bagel lovers, that day has thankfully arrived. Why National Bagel Day is so special, that some people refer to it as a "Hole-y Event!"
Depending upon who you talk to and what you read, the word bagel and the recipe originates in different areas and a different times. In some places, bagels are spelled "biegels". Some folks say the word "bagel" comes from the German word "Bougel", dating back to the 16th century. But, it is believed that the recipe for bagels evolved from the ringed Polish bread "Obwarzanek", which was invented in the late 14th century. In Krakow, Poland, they were given as gifts to women after childbirth.
Personally, we don't care too much what it is called, or how it came to be. We are just thankful that there's plenty of bagels for all of us! As for flavor choice, I'll take mine with everything!
Setting the date Straight - The date for this special event was February 9. The dated was moved to January 15 by bagel manufacturer Thomas Bagels, to avoid sharing the date with National Pizza Day.
The only requirement for this day, is that you eat bagels. And, have it your way. You can have them toasted or un-toasted. Add whatever you prefer: lox, cream cheese, butter, or your favorite jelly.
