“Me proclaim today National Cookie Day” – Cookie Monster
As luck would have it today is National Cookie Day! According to the Muppet Wiki it is a minor holiday that celebrates cookies in all their sugary glory.
A bit of history
Back in 1980 Random House published “The Sesame Street Dictionary“. In this book Cookie Monster playfully declares a National Cookie Day to celebrate his beloved addiction, however no date was ever specified.
In the summer of 1987 Matt Nader president of the Blue Chip Cookie Company, a small cookie company based out of San Francisco, told the LA Times it was time for a National Cookie Day, “It’s just like having National Secretaries Day … It will just be a fun thing to do“.
So there you have it … sort of … either way we’re happy to indulge cookies this day or any day for that matter. Here are some of our favourite cookie memes etc.
And I’ll leave you with this classic in honour of the king!
