Popcorn Day!

The best old-fashioned fun snack of all is popcorn! You can eat plain or spice it up. You can pop it the old-fashioned way or pop it microwavable style. You can eat it at home or at the theaters watching the latest movie; even with friends as a celebration.

Speaking of celebrations, its National Popcorn Day January 19th. What a perfect day to make your favorite popcorn recipe and invite friends over to play games or watch movies to celebrate the famous popcorn snack.

Popcorn Day

January 19, 2013

Hee Haw Popcorn Night

It was a family tradition on Saturday nights to make popcorn and watch Hee Haw with my parents when I was growing up. We'd pop up popcorn and butter it up yummy; even eat ice cream for something sweet to go with.

Hee Haw was always fun to watch. All the joking around was so silly. I can hear my Dad laugh now as I think of those time. The religious and country music was nice to listen to. My mom loved all the music. They are such fond memories that will always be in my heart.

Poppin Facebook Question

Popcorn Day Facebook Question

I thought it would be neat to ask others on my Facebook page to see how they would celebrate Popcorn Day on January 19th.

Here are the responses:

1. Make Popcorn

2. Have a birthday party

3. Make spiced popcorn

4. Pop a few pumpkin seeds in with the popcorn for health and flavor.

Spiced Popcorn

Take olive oil and put garlic in it and warm it up so the oil becomes enhanced. In a different bowl I mix oregano, basil, onion powder, yellow nutritional flakes, dash of black pepper and hot pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Pop the corn in a hot air popper. Place in a big plastic bag and dump in seasonings; drizzle in olive oil. Shake it all around. Enjoy! (By Daisy, FB Friend)
