About National Macaroon Day
When is National Macaroon Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 31
National Macaroon Day is today. This May 31 holiday honors the Macaroon, a flourless cookie. It is popular among the Jewish community, especially during Passover, when Jews can not cook with flour. But, the popularity of the Macaroon doesn’t stop there. It is also enjoyed around the world.
Macaroons are made from ground nuts and leavened egg whites. Coconut and potato starch is common in Macaroon recipes. Macaroons were believed to have been first made in an Italian monastery in 1792. While monks are well known for their vows of silence, they just couldn’t keep quiet about this tasty treat.

History and Origin of National Macaroon Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. Now, that’s very surprising. Someone apparently liked macaroons enough to create a holiday for it. You would think the creator would then take credit and document it.
Apparently, the creator did not seek national recognition. There are no congressional records to confirm that this is truly a national day. Nor, did we find a presidential proclamation.
