Why do we celebrate food days?

Some marketers may wonder why we celebrate national food days. Food holidays have become popular through social media. If someone announces a new food day on social media and gets enough people to like and share the post with hashtags, quite often a new food holiday is born.

But while food holidays are a fairly recent social media trend, they aren’t that different from celebrating traditional seasonal holidays with food. Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day and the Fourth of July are all days of celebration that are tied to specific foods. Turkey is forever linked to Thanksgiving, chocolate is always synonymous with Valentine’s Day, and no one can think about a patriotic summer holiday without conjuring up images of juicy burgers on the grill.

But why just share one recipe each month? There are many national food days in 2024 worthy of celebrating. Here’s a list of some of the more popular food holidays in 2024 with a link to a healthy recipe you can share for each one:
