National Parfait Day
When is National Parfait Day? This holiday is always observed on November 25
Today is National Parfait Day, a November 25 holiday. There are two types of parfaits, the French and the American versions. The American parfait that you and I are familiar with consists of layers of ice cream, whipped cream, and any combination of syrups and fruits. Yes, it’s a fancy word for a sundae. And, it’s usually served in a fancy glass. We wondered why the creator of this holiday selected a November date. Most ice cream-related holidays are in the summer. Because the creator is unidentified, we can only speculate on the reason. We suspect this cool weather date was selected because we tend to make fancier desserts in fall an winter weather.
