National Popcorn Day


National Popcorn Day is celebrated at the end of January, although its exact date is a matter of debate. Various sources report it as January 19; others claim it takes place on whatever day the “big game” falls on. The Popcorn Board is often asked about the origins of this day; unfortunately, we do not know how or when this celebration began. Some other individual or organization (with obvious good taste) began this tradition.

If you know of the origins of National Popcorn Day, please email us at: edu@popcorn.org.

In the meantime, here is a recipe to help you celebrate!
