With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s now behind us, it may seem as though we’re entering a slow season for food holidays — especially if you’re a foodie who revels in the way holidays foster time in the kitchen (or eating what comes out of it).
But take heart! While the time of fir-tree-shaped appetizer platters and candy-cane-flavored everything has passed, there’s actually still lots for your palate to look forward to. Case in point? February has tons to offer in the way of foodie-centric holidays (and we’re not even counting Valentine’s Day).
Every single day of the month has its own food-themed holiday, giving you 28 excuses this year to whip up themed creations. Did you know a National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day exists? Because it does, and it happens in February. Or how about National Drink Wine Day? Yep, that happens this month.
There are month-long holidays revolving around food in February, too. Basically, we’d be cool if the powers that be changed this month’s name from February to Heaven. That fits, right?
So, whet your appetites! We’ll start with the daily holidays to put on your culinary calendar.
