National Popcorn Day

National Popcorn Day is annually observed January 19th.

This time-honored treat can be sweet or savory, caramelized, buttered or plain, molded into a candied ball or tossed with nuts and chocolate. However, it is enjoyed ... so, enjoy it on National Popcorn Day, January 19th.

The word "corn" in Old English meant "grain" or more specifically the most prominent grain grown in a region. As maize was the most common grain in early America, the word "corn" was aptly applied.

As early as the 16th century, popcorn was used in headdresses worn during Aztec ceremonies honoring Tlaloc, their god of maize and fertility. Early Spanish explorers were fascinated by the corn that burst into what looked like a white flower.
