Homemade Bread Day

Date When Celebrated : Always November 17

Bakers of the world, rise up and bake some bread, for today is Homemade Bread Day.

Bread has been made for thousands of years. Estimates date it's origin back to 5000-10,000 B.C. Modern day lifestyles has relegated homemade bread to the world of specialty baking and holiday baking. People just don't have time to bake home made bread. We turn to a quick "run" to bakeries and grocery stores, for our bread needs. The arrival of automatic bread makers has created a small resurgence of home made breads, especially specialty breads.

The purpose of this day is easy to understand.--- to make home made bread, and to encourage you and me to make tasty and nutritious bread. So, take a little time out of your busy day, and make some bread. Your nose, your taste buds, and your whole family will be glad you did.

Happy Homemade Bread Day!

Thought for the Day: Bread is a lot like the Sun. It rises in the Yeast, and sets in the Waist.

Origin of Homemade Bread Day:

From our research, it appears that this special day is sponsored by the Homemade Bread Day Committee of Montague, Mi. We did not find their website. So we have yet to uncover more information about this special day.

Site Visitor Comment:

I would guess it started in the mid 1970s when most commercial bakeries jacked the price of bread from about 40 cents or so a loaf to a dollar or so. the women of America revolted and started baking at home in record numbers. Enough that the price of commercial bread dropped back within a very short time. Damn shame they couldn’t do it again with many other items. I was working in a grocery store at the time and I remember it fairly well. ... Bill H.
