Actually, International Bacon Day is held the Saturday before labor day. In the case of our friend 2009, that means we get to celebrate on September 5th this year.
Sadly, I don’t think that Congress has officially designated International Bacon Day as a bank holiday yet (They’re too busy arguing about healthcare for all the U.S. Americans and the Iraq.) But since we get Labor Day off, I think it’s totally within our right to claim Labor Day as an extention of Internation Bacon Day. Let’s make it real by going out there and making it real.
Write a letter to your Congressional Rep (please don’t) and scream out for the National acceptance of bacon! Better yet, go to your local grocer and stimulate the heck out of their bacon fridge (by buying all their bacon.)
