December Chocolate Holidays 2011

I know, I know, isn't December full enough of fun holidays?  True, very true, but we can't just approach the month without awareness of other possible fun food holidays and events we could mark, can we?

1st Week of December = Cookie Cutter Week -- Hey, just in time for holiday baking and an entire week to work with.

December 1 = National Pie Day -- Not innately chocolate but it could be.  What is your favorite chocolate pie?

December 4 = National Cookie Day -- Makes sense if you have a week for cookies you'd place your single day celebration there, too. Or does it make sense?

December 5 = National Sacher Torte Day -- I'm going to try and find out what this is and make one or buy one but I think it can have something to do with chocolate when I did some research earlier this year.

December 8 = National Chocolate Brownie Day -- YUM!  I'm making something for this this, I promise.

December 9 = National Pastry Day -- Pastry is ... difficult.  

December 12 = National Cocoa Day -- Dutched or not?

December 15 = National Cookie Day, National Cupcake Day -- Another cookie day?  Cupcake day, sure, but we just had a cookie day like 11 days ago.

December 16 = National Chocolate Covered Anything Day -- Anything?  What is the strangest thing you've eaten covered with chocolate?

December 28/29 = National Chocolate Days -- Do we honestly need this at the end of the year?

Leave your thoughts below, please, Brothers and Sisters.

I honestly cannot believe there is a cupcake day! I share the feeling though that those are the moest exquisit pieces of bakery ever, but a whole day dedicated to them like the father´s day??? It´s too much.
When I was in Argentina in my vacation, I was staying in a buenos aires apartment and my neighbours were celebrating the day of Dulce de Leche!!! Look it up if you do not know what it means, it is a typical ingredient there!

Thanks for reading and commenting, Kimberly.

I know what Dulce de Leche is but not really related to chocolate unless you know of recipes that include both -- I imagine there may be but I'm not aware of them yet.
