Popcorn Lovers Day or Popcorn Lovers Night
About Popcorn Lovers Day
When is Popcorn Lovers Day? This holiday is celebrated on the second Thursday in March
Today is Popcorn Lovers Day, or Popcorn Lovers Night, as most of us enjoy it as a nighttime snack. You can use the terms interchangeably for this exciting holiday. Many of us love popcorn. So, it only makes sense that there should be a special day just for popcorn lovers. Bob Matthews the creator of this holiday from Rochester, NY suggests that on this night you “do what lovers do”. And, that’s eat popcorn!
This is a snack that is good for you when eaten plain. It is not as healthy when it’s loaded with salt and butter. But, all that butter and salt tastes so good. And, you only eat it once a week or so.
This day is intended to enjoy popcorn and share it with others. Bring some to work. Or microwave some and put it in a basket on your desk.
You can traditionally have it with salt and butter. Or, you can add any one of several flavors to it. Some popular flavors are cheddar cheese, parmesan garlic, and even hot pepper! There is no requirement as to what seasoning to use today, as long as you eat plenty of it. Now, that’s not hard to do, is it!?
Today is the perfect day to make a big bowl of popcorn and cozy up to your cutie on the sofa, as you watch television this evening.
How to Celebrate Popcorn Lovers Day
- Pull out the popcorn maker and pop a batch.
- Have it your way! Add butter, salt, cheese, or any other flavor you desire.
- Make it Popcorn Lover’s Night. Eat it while enjoying your favorite television show or streaming a movie.
- Bring some to work to share with co-workers.
- Go to a movie and buy a large bucket of real movie theater popcorn. It’s the best. Don’t forget the extra butter.
“Every once in a while someone would mail me a single kernel that didn’t pop. I’d get out a fresh kernel, tape it to a piece of paper and mail it back to them.” – – Orville Redenbacher
History and Origin of Popcorn Lovers Day
This day was created on January 6, 2012, by Bob Matthews of Rochester, NY. It is Bob’s favorite snack. He and his wife Debbie, enjoy it on most Thursdays, all year long. Bob is also an avid gardener. He has grown and dried popcorn kernals for popping, too.
In recent years, some internet websites have begun calling it National Popcorn Lovers Day. Matthews says this is incorrect. He did not call it a “National” day and people shouldn’t change the title in any way.
