Tomorrow will be the first day of April and it might be Spring, or not. Yesterday where I live it was 74 degrees Fahrenheit but today the high may be only 50. To get you ready for a month of chocolate fun, regardless of your weather, here is our calendar of fun and serious holidays you could celebrate with chocolate.
April = National Poetry Month -- Have you ever written a poem about chocolate?
April 2 = International Children’s Book Day in honor of Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, celebrated since 1967. Here are some children's books we've reviewed on this blog:
Ice Cream Summer
Daniel's Crazy Choco Party
Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids
April 3, 1892 = date of the creation of the Ice Cream Sundae but the National Sundae Day is in November for some reason!
April 3 = National Chocolate Mousse Day -- here's an old post about Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse
April 5 = National Caramel Day
