If you're looking for something to do today then grab a bowl because it's National Cereal Day!  I don't care what kind of cereal you fill your bowl with, just get to munching!  Let's get right into celebrating National Cereal Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, let's stop and think for a moment here... Have you ever eaten cereal in your life? Most likely you have at some point and so has everyone else. So why wouldn't you want to celebrate such a widely consumed breakfast food? It's just that simple; eat it enough and people will want to celebrate it!  The first packaged, ready-to-eat breakfast cereal was invented in 1863 in the United States of America. It was called Granula and was created by James Caleb Jackson. Jackson was a vegetarian who I guess didn't like all the meat that people were normally eating for breakfast so he created his own breakfast food.

The only problem was that you had to soak the heavy bran nuggets in his cereal overnight so that they were tender enough to eat. Yeah, that cereal never caught on!  Fast forward to 1879 for the creation of George Hoyt's Wheatena, a toasted wheat cereal that you can still buy today. Hop to 1895 for the start of Kellogg's Corn Flakes and 1937 for General Mills' Kix. And today the market is so flooded with different types of cereal that they get their own aisle in your grocery store! Trust me, you won't run out of choices today.  It doesn't matter if you want a sweet-tasting cereal or a healthy cereal; they've got you covered! You can go from eating pretty much a candy bar crumbled up in a box to a healthy, energy-packed breakfast. The choice is all yours.

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  Well, just head to your grocery store and start searching around for a cereal you'd like to crunch on today.  Look for your favorite kind to ensure that you enjoy the celebration.  Heck, even go back to your roots and eat some cereal that you haven't had since you were a kid.  There had to be some reason you liked it then, right?  Or maybe you can be bold and try out something new.  Scan the shelves and see what box or bag catches your eye.  Do you want to try something with an interesting ingredient?  Do you want to start eating healthier?  Expand your cereal horizons!

And why not have a little fun with it and send someone blindfolded down the cereal aisle to pick out a couple boxes for you to try out.  It's highly unlikely that you'll end up with a cereal that tastes bad but you'll definitely end up with someone new if you select more than one!   And hey, don't forget that milk comes in more than one flavor ;).  It's cereal day, no one's going to care if you want strawberry milk in your cereal... you're celebrating after all!  Enjoy your breakfast and don't let your cereal get soggy!
