July 7, 2014 is Chocolate Day

Today is a delicious reason to celebrate—it’s Chocolate Day!

Did you know that chocolate actually comes from trees? It’s true! This small tree is called Theobroma cacao, or the cocoa tree. Its fruit produces cocoa seeds, which in turn produces cocoa powder and chocolate. If only chocolate bars grew on trees!

Today, take the time to enjoy one of the most popular desserts in the world. Whether you prefer to munch on a chocolate bar, sip on a steaming cup of hot chocolate, or smother an ice cream sundae in hot chocolate fudge, be sure to get your chocolate fix! Happy Chocolate Day!

Today is also Tell the Truth Day & Macaroni Day & Build a Scarecrow Day & National Strawberry Sundae Day & Global Forgiveness Day.

Huh?  Macaroni Day??
