Our great nation celebrates National Pasta Day on October 17th…or tomorrow. I learned of it quite by accident the other day and was, frankly, pleasantly surprised. These days pasta is so often maligned as being nutritionally vacuous that the idea of celebrating it nationally came as a bit of welcomed respite.
After further checking, National Pasta Day does indeed have its moment in the sun. It just has to share it with 13 other ‘celebratees,’ the most interesting of which are Four Prunes Day, International Adjust Your Chair Day, National Clear Your Virtual Desktop Day and, most ambiguously, National Edge Day.
