About Roast Chestnuts Day

When is Roast Chestnuts Day? This holiday is always observed on December 14

Today is Roast Chestnuts Day, a December 14 holiday. Aren’t you excited!? Every Christmas holiday we all sing about “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire….” But, have you ever roasted chestnuts!? It may surprise you to know, that some people have never even tasted a chestnut. How unfortunate for them!!

It’s time we changed that, by simply roasting some chestnuts today. Roast them in the early evening, so they will be done in time for an evening snack. They go great with a cup of hot chocolate.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, take a few minutes to roast chestnuts. Make sure to roast enough to share with family, co-workers, and friends. You can even wrap some up and include them in gift baskets.

How to Celebrate Roast Chestnuts Day

  • Roast chestnuts. It’s okay if you don’t have an open fireplace. You can roast them in the oven.
  • Have them as a snack tonight.
  • Make them the night before and bring them to work to share with co-workers.

History and Origin of Roast Chestnuts Day

Bob Matthews, owner of Holiday Insights created this new and very special day in 2015. It certainly seemed that an essential holiday event was missing from the busy holiday calendar.

The date to celebrate Roast Chestnuts Day was selected to coincide with the beginning of the “Twelve Days of Christmas”. This date was also selected just before we all get totally engrossed (and more than a little stressed out) with all the activities of the holiday season.

In a recent review, we found a website referring to this as a “National” day. As the creator of this day, it IS NOT national day.
