National Brown Bag It Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on May 25
Welcome to National Brown Bag It Day. The brown bag has been around for a long, long time. It seems like just yesterday, everyone was "brown bagging it", taking their lunch to work or school in a brown paper bag. My how times have changed. Nowadays, very few people brown bag it.
If you extend this line of thought to include in the definition of "brown baggers", people who carry their lunch in a lunch bucket or a lunch pail back in the day, that would include most people.
Then, somewhere along the way, Brown Bagging your lunch grew out of style. Busy, working moms did not have the time in the morning to pack a good lunch. School lunch programs were initiated or expanded, to the point where almost all kids bought their lunch at school. After all, bringing your lunch is not considered "cool".
Today is the perfect day to go "retro" if only for a day, and brown bag your lunch. Nostalgia aside, there are good reasons to brown bag it. First of all, it can save a lot of money, over buying lunch on a daily basis. Second, home made or foods packed from home always taste better. In addition Mom or Dad can pack a lunch that is more healthy and nutritious. That's a lot of good reasons to brown bag it. Now, if we can only get people to look at brown bagging as being the "cool" thing to do.
National Brown Bag It Day. is the prefect day to go back in time and brown bag it. Because it is a special holiday, it will be the "cool" thing to do, if only for a day.
