Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

Happy National Greasy Food Day ~ October 25

I live in the south.  They have a theory down here.  If you can eat it, you can fry it!  When I moved here from New Jersey my cholesterol levels were just fine, but not anymore.  Because if you live in the south every day is greasy food day.

What can be deep fried?
Your Thanksgiving Turkey


Candy Bars


Even Soda can be deep fried

And if you really want your cholesterol levels to soar,
try deep fried butter
