About National Popcorn Day

When is National Popcorn Day? This holiday is always observed on January 19

Today is National Popcorn Day. This January 19 holiday encourages us to eat popcorn any way we like it. Question: Does anyone really need encouragement to eat one of America’s favorite snacks? We won’t pop (burst) your bubble, err pop your corn that is. This day celebrates healthy (until you load it with salt and butter) and addicting popcorn. Speaking of healthy, plain popcorn is very good for you.

Strangely, National Popcorn Day is in January. Yet, National Popcorn Month is in October. There is some suggestion that Popcorn Day may, at one point, have been tied to the Superbowl. And, we found one reference to it being on January 30th.

On National Popcorn Day, we suggest you pop up some fresh popcorn, kick back and enjoy!
