National Pumpkin Pie Day

National Pumpkin Pie Day, Daily Calendar Holiday

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on December 25

Today is a very, very special day. It's National Pumpkin Pie Day. It's one of America's favorite pies. Pumpkin pie is steeped in holiday tradition. The peak consumption period for pumpkin pie begins at the fall harvest, and lasts all the way through to the Christmas meal and dessert.

One might wonder why have National Pumpkin Pie Day on Christmas Day. Unfortunately, we have yet to find the creator of this day. So, the timing remains a mystery. However, we are thankful for this special recognition, and will certainly have a little pumpkin pie with our whipped cream today

Did you know? There are at least two Christmas songs that sing the tradition of eating pumpkin pie for the holidays. Those songs are Home for the Holidays and Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.

Recipe of the Day: Traditional Pumpkin Pie

Happy National Pumpkin Pie Day

Today's Quote: "I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it al to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion." - - Henry David Thoreau

History and Origin of National Pumpkin Pie Day:

Our extensive search has yet to discover any factual content on this very special day. The folks at PumpkinNook.com believe that National Pie Day should be every day of the year.  

There was some reference to this as a "National Day".  We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
