As you may have heard, today is National Cupcake Day. This is, of course, not a Federal holiday, but still one that people are super excited about, because of the inexplicable popularity of cupcakes.
But there’s a scandal! (My favorite!)
We’re all celebrating an impostor holiday! December 15 is in fact… National LEMON Cupcake Day. Chocolate Cupcake Day is in October, Vanilla Cupcake Day is in November. Unofficially, March brings us Baileys/Car Bomb/Guinness Cupcake Day, which may actually be my favorite of the Cupcake Days.
But with all this celebration of cupcakes, I have a question: When will we celebrate National “Adorably cupcake-size pie that I refuse to refer to as a Cup-pie” Day?
I don’t need to worry about the full-sized pie, though – by my count, there are nineteen days celebrating some kind of pie. I’m a little sad to notice how many of them are way out of season, actually. Blueberry Pie in April? Tsk. On the other hand, I am perfectly happy to squish together national Egg Nog Day (Dec 24) and National Pumpkin Pie Day (Dec 25). That sounds like a perfect Christmas breakfast!
Since these all seem to be totally arbitrary dates, I suggest we pick a day for the Tiny Pie and celebrate it. What do you think? What day shall we designate for the celebration of the best kind of pie, the kind you can carry in your hand?
(On a more serious note, here is a suggestion for a national holiday that I would sing from the hills. The Bill of Rights: maybe the best thing ever. Let us be thankful and celebrate it!)
