National Cheeseball Day

Cheeseball Day

When is National Cheeseball Day? This holiday is always celebrated on April 17

National Cheeseball Day is today, an April 17 holiday. But wait!!! What kind of cheeseball are we talking about? There’s the light and airy, irresistible puffy corn cheese ball that you munch on for a snack by the dozens. There is also the party cheeseball, often decorated with nuts, that sits on a party tray until spread on a cracker. Why do we celebrate these two snacks? Simply because the author of this holiday is unknown and failed to leave documentation describing the reason for this day. either way, this is a day to stuff yourself with cheeseballs.  In celebration of this special holiday event, let’s celebrate and enjoy both kinds of cheeseballs.

When it comes to the cheeseball snack, we are certain that you can’t eat just one. Not even a handful. Corn cheese balls are addicting. Place a bowl of cheeseballs on the counter and watch them disappear right before your eyes. Toddlers and young kids are Cheeseball hounds. So are teenagers and adults. In other words, everyone lives cheeseballs.

The cheeseballs we savor on holiday trays are equally loved. Strangely, it is wildly popular around the holidays and hard to find other times of the year.

Celebrate this cheesy day with cheeseballs (both kinds). Serve them after dinner during your favorite television show, or whenever it’s convenient.

History and Origin of National Cheeseball Day

Is this a celebration derived from the snack industry, or the dairy industry? We suspect so. However, our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. We continue to search for him or her. Until we find them, it remains a mystery which cheeseball this day is celebrating.

We found no documentation in congressional records to confirm that this is truly a national day. Nor did we find a presidential proclamation.
