If you're looking for something to do today then get ready to start crunching because it's National Pickle Day!  Now all you have to do is choose which kind of pickles to munch on!  But let's get right into celebrating National Pickle Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, where've you been? Pickles are everywhere! They end up on hamburgers or beside sandwiches and they are often demanded by pregnant women. Yeah, people love their pickles! They're juicy, but crisp and they add a nice tangy taste which a lot of people find appealing. And today is no different than any other food holiday, because the popularity of the food is the reason for the celebration. But of course there is no real reason for this particular day to be chosen.  And yeah, there are a lot of things you can pickle (which is a way to preserve things) but around here when you say you want a pickle, you mean a pickled cucumber. And that's the case in Australia and Canada too. But the dill pickle is probably one of the most common types of pickles, which means its pickled in garlic, dill weed and salt brine. And I'm sure you know that there are a lot of different kinds of pickles out there.

I enjoy the "bread and butter" variety, which has a bit of sugar added in, but have you ever heard of Kool-Aid pickles? I haven't either, but I guess in the Southern United States people will pickle dill pickles in Kool-Aid and pickle brine. I'm not really sure how well that would turn out, but they'd be interestingly colored and flavored. I just looked them up and they look pretty cool, especially when you slice them open.  But which kind of pickle do you prefer?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, do you have a magical jar of pickles waiting for you in your fridge? OK, it doesn't have to be magical; it's just easier if you have one in there. If you do then you know what to do... gobble down those pickles! Eat them plain, on a sandwich or heck, fry them up if you want! But get those delicious pickles in you.  Or you could go out to eat and make sure that you order a meal that will include a pickle or two, in it or on the side. It could actually be a fun bit of research, if you think about it. Go out to eat with a few people and then each of you can order something that, you would assume, would come with a pickle in some way. Then you get to wait and see who ordered correctly and who has to make a special request to get a pickle on their plate.  But have you ever made a pickle before? I know I haven't, but today would be a good day to start that pickling process. I mean, you could even make your own pickle recipe today! What do you think would make a pickle taste awesome? Are you brave enough to go the ways of Kool-Aid or will the basic dill do for you? And if making your own pickles isn't cool enough for you, then why don't you try chugging a glass of pickle juice and see what that does for you?  Have a great day and enjoy the pickle magic!
