January 23rd is National Pie Day! Here at the American Pie Council we are encouraging you to celebrate by hosting pie parties with friends, co-workers and family. Sharing pie is a great way to show your love and friendship. It's also a great way to show people that you appreciate what they do for you throughout the year, so donate some pies to your local police and fire departments. They really appreciate it.
Which pie should you choose for your National Pie Day party? The pie-sibilities are endless! Will it be one of the 231 varieties of apple pie, the favorite of 36 million Americans? Perhaps pumpkin pie, which was first introduced to the holiday table at the pilgrim's second Thanksgiving in 1623? Or maybe a pecan pie, which is the third most popular choice in our nation of pie lovers? We are encouraging pie lovers everywhere to enjoy some pie in honor of National Pie Day.
