It’s hard to believe, but we are almost in December! The last month of the year might be better known for holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and Hanukkah, but there are plenty of food holidays to celebrate as well.

Here are some December food holidays that we’ll be celebrating in the upcoming month!

National Cookie Day: December 4th

National Cookie Day will be celebrated on a Wednesday this month, and my suggestion is to make a batch to take to work for a mid-week pick-me-up! National Cookie Day is a day to celebrate one of the world’s most treasured desserts.

National Maple Syrup Day: December 17th

Maple syrup is one of my favorite sweet treats. This delicious liquid, which is obtained from a fascinating process in which the sap of maple trees is painstakingly collected and refined, can be used to top breakfast favorites such as pancakes and french toast. 

National Bacon Day: December 30th

If you thought that the last days of the month of December were only reserved for the excitement of the New Year, you thought wrong! National Bacon Day on December 30th is a celebration of this delicious meat that you’ll find on breakfast plates and on trendy hamburgers.

National Pear Month

Pear is a classic autumn and winter fruit, meaning that December has been designated as National Pear Month. These little beauties are delicious on their own, in desserts, or baked in the oven and topped with honey and cinnamon.
