    I’m looking at your calendar (I have a lunch date tomorrow, thought I’d pick a place that fit the holiday.) and I noticed National Cheese Sacrifice Day? I cannot wait for that one…

    um… you need to add National Juicing Day… Feb 5


  7. Hello!

    We noticed that Pork Rind Day and Pork Rind Appreciation Day were missing from your online food holiday calendar. In order to celebrate the salty, crunchy, delicatessen that is the pork rind, we believe you should include this national holiday on your calendar. (Who wouldn’t love the opportunity to research and learn about the rich history and culture surrounding the pork rind?)

    Let us know what you need from us to get both Pork Rind Day and Pork Rind Appreciation Day added!
