It’s the week after the 4th of July, and all of a sudden a bunch of good food holidays have come out to play. This was my week to get back on the diet wagon, but maybe next week will be better – I’m not missing mac & cheese day.
Monday, July 8th
National Chocolate with Almonds Day
One of my favorite candy bars is an old school Hershey bar with almonds. I think I’ll celebrate by getting one.
Tuesday, July 9th
National Sugar Cookie Day
Oh, and then I’ll have a sugar cookie on Tuesday. This is shaping up to be a great week.
Wednesday, July 10th
National Clerihew Day
Per Wikipedia: “A clerihew (/ˈklɛrɪhjuː/) is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The first line is the name of the poem’s subject, usually a famous person put in an absurd light, or revealing something unknown or spurious about them.” Post yours in the comments below.
National Pina Colada Day
And nowwwwwwwwwwwww I have Jimmy Buffet stuck in my head.

National Cheer Up The Lonely Day
Please send your cheer up tweets to @jennalcrowley. Thank you.
National Rainier Cherry Day
Still not a fan of cherries.
National Blueberry Muffin Day
I saved a keto blueberry muffin recipe on Facebook a while back. Maybe it’s time to try it…or leave it there with the 1483 recipes I’ll never make.
All American Pet Photo Day
Check out our Pet of The Week for adorbs pet photos.
National Mojito Day
Not my fave. I think it’s the mint.
National 7-Eleven Day
Are there free slurpees?
Friday, July 12th
Paper Bag Day
Or maybe try a reusable bag.
National Simplicity Day
As opposed to “National Make Shit More Complicated Than It Needs To Be” Day?
National Different Colored Eyes Day
I don’t know anyone in real life with different colored eyes, so…celebs with different colored eyes include:
National Pecan Pie Day
My 2nd favorite kind of pie!
Eat Your Jello Day
Why would I eat jello when I can eat pecan pie?!
Collector Car Appreciation Day
I pass a “car show” every Thursday on my way home from work and I swear it’s just an excuse for old dudes to get together in a parking lot and drink. More power to ‘em.

National Beans ‘N’ Franks Day
I like a good grilled hot dog now and again, but not a fan of beans.
National French Fry Day
Oh, good, now I can have something else with my frank.
National Delaware Day
Fun fact: The Lady Bug is Delaware’s official state bug. Do all states have state bugs? Stay tuned.

National Mac & Cheese Day
This may be my favorite holiday of the year, after Thanksgiving.
National Nude Day
On mac & cheese day? That seems wrong.
National Grand Marnier Day
Oh, thank god. I’m going to need some booze to be nude after eating mac & cheese.
