19April, 2017 U.S.
April 19 is our favorite day of the year—National Garlic Day! Did you know that garlic was worshipped by Egyptians as a god—and even used as currency? That’s not all—it was used to give strength to Greek athletes and warriors, ward off the evil eye, and protect maidens from evil nymphs. We have to say, we value it just as highly today. Just think about all the garlicky foods it’d be impossible to live without. There’s garlic bread, garlic fries, garlic pasta … we could go on forever. If you feel as strongly about garlic as we do—that’s probably not possible, but you can try, celebrate with us this April 19!
