Is there such a thing as National Bagel Day?

BagelsYes indeed. February 9th is officially National Bagel Day. The 9th of February is quite a historical date with some very important events having occurred on this day:

–          In 1824 the U.S. House of Representatives elected John Quincy Adams president. No candidate had received a majority of electoral votes.

–          In 1895 the sport of volleyball was invented by W.G. Morgan.

–          In 1943 U.S. forces won a strategic victory over Japan on the island of Guadalcanal

–          In 1953 the first “Superman” movie premiered

–          In 1964 The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show

–          In 1997 “The Simpsons” became the longest-running prime-time animated series

It’s a pretty big day to live up to but we think the bagel is worth of such influential company.
