Happy National CandyKingTut Day!

No I am not kidding, November 4th is National Candy Day! Like having Halloween, the biggest candy holiday of all on October 31st is not enough, they throw in a day like this! What is National Candy Day you may ask, I wondered the same thing but alas, all of my Google searches were for naught. I couldn't find one article that actually explained the inception of Candy Day or how it became a National Holiday. I did however find this article talking about National Candy Day that has a sweet vintage Tootsie Roll commercial at the end of it. So enjoy that Butterfinger, Milky Way, Tootsie Pop or Payday without the guilt, it is a National Holiday today so the calories don't count;).

November 4th is also King Tut Day, the day we celebrate the discovery of King Tutankhamen's Tomb. His nearly intact tomb was discovered on November 4th, 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. Most people that celebrate King Tut day do so by reading books about King Tut and Egypt. No one knows who created it or when it was first celebrated, but it gives us another excuse to PAR-TAY! So Happy King Tut day everyone, why not throw a Candy themed King Tut party and kill two birds with one stone;).
