We can all ham it up and fry, bake, broil or sizzle on Saturday, Aug. 30. International Bacon Day is celebrated the Saturday before Labor Day in the United States. Labor Day is Monday, Sept. 1 this year.
Wikipedia attributes Bacon Day to folks in the city of Bedford, Massachusetts.
I never would have known bacon had its own day if Sarah Park from Hunter Public Relations in NYC hadn’t sent me an e-mail. Thanks, Sarah! She works for the 2014 CONSUMER AGENCY OF THE YEAR. As a former ad and PR woman, I admire her.
You can Google recipes — I mean a gazillion recipes for everything from breakfast bacon ideas to cocktails. Bacon infused vodka? Bacon Bloody Marys? I’m not that big of a fan of bacon, but creativity rocks.
Thanks again to Sarah Park — she shared that awesome Smithfield bacon graphic that tells us how we love bacon.
