Cornchip Day

Corn chips are a snack food made by frying or baking cornmeal into bite-sized pieces, sold in a bag and eaten either alone or with a dip. Though itâ??s origins are unclear, Corn Chip Day celebrates this popular snack and the many ways of enjoying it.

The origin of corn chips dates back to 1932. The story goes that C.E. â??Elmerâ? Doolin bought a bag of fried corn chips and enjoyed them so much he pawned his motherâ??s wedding ring (with her permission, one assumesâ?¦) to purchase the manufacturer and the recipe. He started selling them from his car and now the company he founded is the largest manufacturer of corn chips in the USA.

To celebrate Corn Chip Day, why not eat a bag of corn chips with some dips, such as salsa or guacamole, or even with melted cheese? Itâ??s an ideal snack food.

Curmudgeons Day

Curmudgeons Day is one of those holidays most people find hard to believe is real. There’s no need to worry, though, because you don’t have to be grumpy to celebrate it.

There are many schools of thought regarding Curmudgeons Day. Some say it’s a holiday where you’re supposed to stay home all day and do nothing. Others, though, see it as a day when you’re permitted to be as miserable and grouchy as you like. In fact, they consider it a day when grumpiness should be celebrated.

If you’re not feeling too ill-tempered, though, you can still celebrate Curmudgeons Day, and have fun while doing it. Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate this holiday without necessarily being grumpy yourself:

  • Spread the cheer and make a curmudgeon you know laugh;
  • Watch a film featuring curmudgeons, such as Grumpy Old Men;
  • Take a few moments to appreciate your life and why you really shouldn’t be grumpy.

Curmudgeons Day is an official holiday, but if you really can’t seem to get into the right mood to be true to it, you can always have a bit of fun with the family.
