This Week in Ridiculous Holiday: March 4th – March 10th

I’ve got to tell you, this is a weird week for food holidays. But given that Fat Tuesday is an excuse to stuff your face with whatever you want, I guess we’ll survive. Let’s get to it.

Marching Music Day

You’d think this day would take place in the fall, when there are actually marching bands performing.

National Grammar Day

Let’s not critique this column on grammar, okay?

National Oreo Cookie Day 

Jenna fun fact: I don’t really like Oreos.

Nor do I like white chocolate.
