National Chocolate Day
About National Chocolate Day
When is National Chocolate Day? This holiday is always observed on December 24
Chocoholics rejoice again! This is the second “Chocolate” holiday this month. Aren’t we lucky!? We hope that you haven’t quite had your fill of chocolate and sweets during the holidays, as today is National Chocolate Day. This December 24 holiday comes on Christmas Eve. We’ve been eating Christmas cookies and candy all month. What’s a little more sugar to amp us up while Santa flies around tonight!?
As we researched this day, we were a bit perplexed. Most of us have been enjoying chocolate treats all month long. All of the holiday parties have ample supplies for chocolate candies, cookies, and other treats. Christmas get-togethers and Christmas stockings have plenty of chocolate. Wherever you go this month, chocolate of some kind has been less than an arm’s length away.
Equally confusing is the fact that National Chocolate Anything Day occurs earlier in the month. We wonder why there are two practically identical holidays so close together. Then the answer dawned on us…… Chocoholics! If you count yourself in this group, and we hope you do, then you will agree that every day should be National Chocolate Day!
Ps. Don’t stay up satisfying your chocolate cravings, as Santa Claus will soon visit your house.
How to Celebrate National Chocolate Day
- Enjoy some of the ample piles of chocolates lying around the house. Your Christmas stockings are certain to contain more.
- Start your day with chocolate chip pancakes.
- Look for ways to add a little chocolate to breakfast and lunch. May we suggest chocolate milk or a milkshake.
- Set out chocolate chip cookies and a glass of milk for Santa.

History and Origin of National Chocolate Day
We researched this holiday in the early 2020s and again in the 2020s. Despite our love of chocolate, and our extensive re, we have not yet discovered any factual content on this very special day. We have little doubt the candy industry or a confectioner created this chocolatey day.
There was some reference to this as a “National Day”. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
