Food Celebration Days 2022

Every year, we celebrate different events: birthdays, anniversaries and festivals to name a few. I know many people who also mark food celebration days too, marking and celebrating by baking, sharing and enjoying some or all of these with nearest and dearest.

Naturally, that got me thinking about all the food-related days we remember. Some are more popular than others, like world Nutella or chocolate days. But I’ve also included days that we would celebrate by sharing food with others, such as on Mother’s or Father’s Day, or Christmas. This is, after all, a food blog!

So without further ado, I’ve tried to put together as thorough a list as I can of food celebration days for 2022.
