According to several sources, today is National Coffee Day! Now, from my previous post on coffee holidays, there's some confusion about the date. It would seem that the actual date of National Coffee Day depends on what nation you're in. But because I'm such a global drinker ... er, thinker ... I vote that we celebrate all of them. I'm not sure in what country today's holiday originates, and frankly, I don't care. Any excuse to celebrate the holy bean is alright with me.
Big apologies to Ireland, I missed your Coffee Day on Sept. 19, and Costa Rica, which apparently celebrates Coffee Day on Sept. 12. Dunno what I was doing those days, obviously NOT checking my trivia notes... oh yeah, well the 19th was Piratey, so I was distracted by that patch over my eye. Heh.
Upcoming, Oct. 1 is National Coffee Day in Japan. You have two days to prepare. Get yer espresso machines warmed up.
On another note, according to Kid's Castle, Sept. 29 is also National Ham Day, National Pancake Day, and National Pumpkin Day. Are they making this stuff up?
