National Pie Day (US)

National Pie Day (US)

A school teacher named Charlie Papazian takes credit for founding National Pie Day. Around 1975, he declared to his students that his birthday, January 23rd would be known as National Pie Day. Charlie likes pie, and he celebrates with candles on his birthday pie. This is a holiday simply to celebrate pie, because pie so deserves to be celebrated!
