Name a holiday that falls between St. Patrick's Day and
Easter. Ok...Good Friday doesn't count. Although good
intentions are involved, it's got that whole creepy factor
down with the Stigmata-related events and all...
It's National Corndog Day!
It's a fun holiday that's been around over 15 years and
is rather Hallmark-ish in the fact that it's sponsored by
Foster Farms and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer...Pabst? uh, ok.
However, I do believe I just may be the first American in
the world celebrating the day, as it is just before 6:00am
here on Saturday and it's still Friday in the States. Oh,
those late celebrators...I've got at least a 18 hour jump
on most of North America. Although I don't believe there
are any corndogs on the continent...how sad...I'll be eating
one in spirit and telling everyone at the birthday party I'm
attending tonight that National Corndog Day is upon us.
Inside my brain, I'll be going back to the Porter County Fair,
munching on a corndog, watching my cotton candy shrink, and
thinking...hmmm...this a really good corndog!
