Roast Chestnuts Day

Roast Chestnuts Day, Daily Calendar Holiday

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on December 14

Every Christmas holiday we all sing about "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...." But, have you ever roasted chestnuts!? It may surprise you to know, that some people have never even tasted a chestnut. (how unfortunate for them!!)

It's time we changed that, by simply roasting some chestnuts today. Roast them in early evening, so they will be done in time for an evening snack. They go great with a cup of hot chocolate.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, take a few minutes to roast chestnuts. Make sure to roast enough to share with family, co-workers, and friends. You can even wrap some up and include them in gift baskets.

Today's Quote:  "Improving yourself is a lot more profitable, than trying to improve others." - - Dale Carnegie

History and Origin of Roast Chestnuts Day:

Holiday Insights created this new and very special day in 2015. It certainly seemed an essential holiday event, that was missing on the busy holiday calendar.

The date to celebrate Roast Chestnuts Day was selected to coincide with the beginning of the "Twelve Days of Christmas". This date was also selected just before we all get totally engrossed (and more than a little stressed out) with all the activities of the holiday season.
