National Egg Nog Day
Date When Celebrated : Always December 24
National Egg Nog Day comes but once a year. It celebrates a special, traditional holiday drink. It is consumed with or without Rum. The timing couldn't be any better-- the day before Christmas--- Christmas Eve!
Egg Nog is a seasonal holiday drink. It appears just before Thanksgiving, and is enjoyed by many at the Thanksgiving meal. Consumption then takes a break until the December holidays are in full swing. Consumption of egg nog peaks on Christmas Eve. By the New Year, it is no longer available in stores. If you want eggnog after New Year's you will likely have to make it yourself.
No one seems to know who created National Egg Nog Day. But, egg nog lovers are ecstatic that this day exists. It's loaded with stuff that tastes really good. It's loaded with stuff that's not good for you. Egg Nog aficionados will tell you that its mmmmm delicious!
The Correct Spelling: This holiday drink is spelled "Egg Nog" and "Eggnog", about equally. The carton in the store spells it "Egg Nog". Which is correct? It depends upon how much rum is in your Egg Nog! ... bottoms up!

History and Origin of National Egg Nog Day:
Our extensive search has yet to discover any factual content on this very special day.
There was some reference to this as a "National Day". Perhaps, our fine national leaders had a wee bit too much eggnog when, and they voted this as a National Day. However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation supporting this line of thought.
