The National Popcorn Day is a day that celebrates one of America’s favorite snacks. The brain behind this unique holiday is not known. National Popcorn Day is observed on January 19 while October is marked as the popcorn month.

History of the National Popcorn Day

The origin of National Popcorn Day is unknown. For the popcorn snack, however, it’s origin tends to be debatable. Some people claim it started from the Super Bowl as people looked for a simple snack to take to the game. However, this theory has been disputed by many.

America alone consumes 16 to 17 billion quarts of popcorn annually. These figures would mean that every person in the USA consumes approximately 52 quarts per year. Each year sees a 5% increase in the volume making it one of the most favorite snacks in America. Two-thirds of the popcorn is consumed at home and the rest at events and games tournaments.

The government does not recognize the day and as such the employers observe this day as a typical workday.

How to celebrate the National Popcorn Day

On this day buy popcorns and enjoy them with friends and family. Better still, you can prepare them at the comfort of your kitchen as this offers an excellent opportunity to have family members visit and enjoy the delicacy at home.

As there are many flavors in the market, you can go out and have a taste of your favorite version as a way of celebrating the day.

Children and adults alike find pleasure in making popcorn necklaces and wearing them on this particular day.

Aside from making ornaments from popcorns, your children can make this day special in various other ways. For instance, they could string popcorns and feed them to the birds outside or participate in a popcorn race.

As an adult, you can participate in popcorn puzzles, popcorn basketball on a bucket and other exciting activities that can be done in-house.

At the office, you could give the day a popcorn theme where you wear popcorn like attires and consume a lot of popcorns.

National Popcorn Day is also a great time to give back to society. You can visit a children’s home and organize a fun day for the kids and treat them to popcorns.

Remember that the celebrations are only complete once you post a picture of you eating popcorns on social media via the hashtag #NationalPopcornDay.
