National Pie Day! January 23rd!

January 23rd!  National Pie Day!

How are you going to celebrate this year?  Valentine’s Day may have cornered the market on lovers, but National Pie Day is gaining momentum as the holiday of choice for families and loved ones across generations to pause amidst the hectic pace of everyday life and express their love, gratitude and appreciation for one another, for their blessings, and for the simple things in life.

The American Pie Council® recommends that consumers celebrate National Pie Day by taking some time to slow down and share heartfelt gratitude with loved ones over a delicious slice of pie. After all, by its very nature, a pie is meant to be divided among others! Whether shared between spouses, among parents and children, among grandparents and grandchildren, or simply among friends or coworkers, pie represents the wholesome, simple pleasures that often get overlooked in today’s fast-paced world.


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.
