Cheese Lovers Day is celebrated on Jan. 20 and is a annual celebration of everything cheese. Cheese lovers of all levels are welcome to celebrate the day and spread the love of their favorite food!
So, let’s take a look at what makes the cheese-lovers day special:
What Is Cheese Lovers Day?
Cheese Lovers Day is an annual celebration of cheese. It isn’t a day reserved just for cheese experts, it is a day to be enjoyed equally by your average cheese lover. If you decide to participate, the idea is that you can eat and appreciate cheese in fun ways. It’s the perfect opportunity to indulge yourself and possibly engage in some fun cheese-related eating activities. It is celebrated on a slightly different day every year, depending on how the days of the week fall.
Cheese is popular. In the US one-third of all the milk produced goes into cheese production. Cheese forms a staple part of many people’s diets. Indeed, an old law in the US state of Wisconsin stated that all restaurants had to serve cheese as part of every meal. With around 2000 varieties of cheese existing worldwide, arguably there is something to suit everyone.
When Is Cheese Lovers Day?
This year, Cheese Lovers Day will take place on January 20th, which is a Thursday. You could always celebrate on an alternative day if it suited you better, but for many Thursday is the point in the week when they need something to give them a bit of a lift.
How Is Cheese Lovers Day Celebrated?
The main focus is on eating cheese. The volume and variety of cheese consumed are completely up to you. It’s a chance to use your imagination, you could go back to the 1970s and host a cheese and wine party for your friends. You could also choose to use the day as an opportunity to fundraise for your favorite charity. For instance, you could get people at your workplace to bring in a type of cheese in exchange for a charity donation. You could even host a raffle with a big cheese hamper as the winning price. There’s no limit. Other possibilities include playing cheese-themed games such as cheese rolling or cheese roulette. You could of course keep it simple and opt to try a new recipe, perhaps one using a type of cheese that you haven’t tried before.
Whatever you decide to do, Cheese Lovers Day is something fun to look forward to. If it all sounds a bit too cheesy for you, don’t worry, the chances are there will be another national day for you to celebrate soon.
To everyone else, Happy Cheese Lovers Day for Thursday.
