Breakfast in Bed Day
About Breakfast in Bed Day
When is Breakfast in Bed Day? This holiday is observed on the fourth Saturday in September
Today is Breakfast in Bed Day. Start the day off right and don’t get up for breakfast. The object today’s holiday is to begin it in a casual and leisurely manner. It sets the tone for how you go about the entire day. Americans lead fast and hectic lives. And Saturdays are often the busiest of them all as we get the kids to and from sports programs, do grocery shopping, and attend to a myriad of chores at home. We are so busy most days that we might not even take the time for breakfast. We grab a cup of coffee and are on our way. This holiday is designed to slow it down for just one day to stop and smell the bacon.
On Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, children often serve their parents breakfast in bed. Today everybody gets in the act. We suggest you begin by sleeping in a little. First, don’t set the alarm clock. Next, get someone to bring into your room a tray of pancakes and sausage or your favorite morning fare on a silver platter. If you live alone, quickly hop out of bed, grab a cup of coffee and some bagels or a donut. Then, hop back into bed and chow down.
Breakfast in Bed is Fun and Enjoyable
The object of this holiday is for everyone to wake up to a fun and relaxing breakfast before they get up to start the day. Ideally, there is someone in the house to make breakfast for you today and serve it on a tray as you arise. Won’t the kids be surprised when you enter their bedroom carrying a tray with their favorite cereal and some juice. Kids can bring their parents toast and jelly just like they do on Mother’s and Father’s Day. For couples, the one who wakes up first can make breakfast, and then hop back into bed with two trays containing coffee and “the works”. Or, they both can get up and make breakfast together, and then return to bed to eat it. You never know what kind of frolicking and fun activity that can lead to.
Now that you’ve enjoyed a relaxing, stress-free Breakfast in Bed Day, you still have the whole day left as you arise in a happier, more relaxed manner. You are better prepared to face the hectic day. Or better still, continue to relax and enjoy a beautiful early fall day.
How to Celebrate Breakfast in Bed Day
Here are some ideas on how to celebrate Breakfast in Bed Day:
- It’s easy, just have breakfast in bed.
- Let someone serve you coffee along with eggs, toast, and bacon as soon as you wake up.
- Make breakfast for someone else and serve it to them while they are still in bed.
- Buy some pastries, bagels, or donuts the night before so you won’t have to get up and spend time making anything.
- Of course, if you can’t have breakfast in bed, how about lunch or dinner!?

History and Origin of Breakfast in Bed Day
In 2023, Bob Matthews from Rochester, NY, and owner of HolidayInsights.com created this pleasant and relaxing day. Matthews says we lead busy lives, normally hopping out of bed and on the go all day long. This holiday encourages us to take a break by starting with a leisurely breakfast in bed. This will set the tone for the day and it will be a far more pleasurable day.
A late September Saturday morning was selected as summer is over and people are “moving indoors”. The hectic holidays are still months away. So, Matthews says it just seems like a good time to have a leisurely Saturday and what better way to start it off, than breakfast in bed?
