December 30, 2013: It’s one of the most wonderful days of the year: Bacon Day. Not to be confused with International Bacon Day, which falls on August 31st. We don’t need a geographic modifier on this one, people. Because BACON.
It’s also the perfect time of year for National Bicarbonate of Soda Day. It’s good for a thousand and one household uses, from baking (and after this last week, we can definitely say it’s a baking time of year) to relieving indigestion (which happens after the consumption of all those delicious baked goods). Heck, you can even mix baking soda with vinegar to create your own volcano!
