Fruitcake probably has the the worst connotation out of every possible item eaten during the holidays. However, it is still an important part of the holiday traditions, so why not give it a holiday of it’s own!
Happy National Fruitcake Day!
Celebrated between December 26-Jan 1st, Kwanzaa is a celebration that culminates in a feast and gift giving.
What else is celebrated on December 25th other than Christmas?
NATIONAL PUMPKIN PIE DAY! Enjoy!
"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time."
-Laura Ingalls Wilder
Enjoy this special time of year and celebrate all loved ones.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
Rich brownies, chocolate brownies, double chocolate brownies, fudge brownies, almond fudge brownies, brownies with whipped cream, brownies with ice cream, and the list goes on and on.
Suggestion: Spend National Brownie Day doing either one of two things:
- Baking brownies with all your friends or family.
- Trying all of these brownie types
Don’t worry, we won’t count how many bites you take of each brownie, or how many kinds you try.
Imagine You’re at a Carnival…in the middle of December?!
Well I guess being at the carnival in the middle of winter doesn’t sound that appealing, yet somehow National Cotton Candy Day is celebrated in the middle of December…
Oh well, who cares today is still another excuse to eat cotton candy. So Enjoy!
Remember when your mom would tell you not to go into the cookie jar before dinner, well I’m sure she would make an exception for National Cookie Day. Dig into that jar, and treat yourself to a cookie before dinner time. You Deserve It!
Black Friday = Shopping Madness
Don’t even bother sleeping after your Thanksgiving dinner, just go work off those turkey calories by waiting in line for those incredible discounts. Hyatt 48 Lex is located just a couple of blocks away from the heart of NYC shopping…aka the infamous Fifth Avenue. Hope you don’t mind a little pushing and shoving. Happy shopping!
Everyone has something that they are thankful for; whether it be their family, friends, job, roof over their head, or food in front of them. Spend some time today to give thanks for everything you are grateful for. Now, go enjoy that turkey and stuffing!
National Parfait Day!
Parfaits are layers of ice cream, whipped cream, and any combination of syrups and fruits that you desire. Just because most people enjoy the chocolate parfait, doesn’t mean that that’s the only version out there. Get creative, and put anything you want into your parfait…just make sure to put your parfait in some fancy smancy cup for that restaurant made effect.
Thank you to those who risked their lives to protect the safety of America as a whole. Let’s take some time to honor the service of ALL US military veterans.
If you want a say, you better vote!
"Good and Plenty": considered by some as the first branded candy

Happy Columbus Day!
Fluffernutter? National Fluffernutter Day?
Many people don’t know what a fluffernutter is, let alone this holiday, so let’s take a look-
Fluffernutter (n.): a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow creme.
The name comes from the common brand of marshmallow creme called “Marshmallow Fluff.” Variations on this sandwich have come to include any ingredient compatible with peanut butter.
So there you have it!
