On National Absinthe Day, observed each year on March 5, we celebrate the drink known as “the green fairy.” Absinthe originated in Switzerland in the 18th century and rose to popularity in early 20th century France, especially with artists and writers. The drink enjoys a mystique and is often associated with bohemian culture, making it an especially fun drink to enjoy today!
On National Oreo Cookie Day (March 6) we celebrate America’s number one cookie. With crisp chocolate cookies and creamy filling, these little cookies have captured our hearts — and our stomachs. The Oreo was first introduced in 1912 and it has been the bestselling cookie in America ever since. We love to dunk them, twist them, and straight up take a bite. Here’s to the delicious Oreo.
On March 6, we celebrate subzero sustenance with National Frozen Food Day.
