There are so so so so so many food "holidays" - and National Cupcake Day is one more. I'm not at all sure why we need Cupcake Day in December; with so many holidays afoot, surely we are stuffed with sweets and desserts already? When I think of December holidays, I think of chocolate gelt and hot cocoa with peppermint sticks and gingersnaps and the dreaded fruitcake (but I make a yummy fruitcake-sort-of-loaf that people love!) and cookies, cookies, cookies. So...we're adding cupcakes to the caloric intake?
Of course, cupcakes are mighty fun to decorate and can certainly be decorated with a Hanukkah or Christmas or Kawanza or Solstice flair!
I expected International Tea Day to be the same sort of food holiday, but actually it is a more serious day in tea-producing nations, with workers and growers working for global attention, and to have fair trade practices and good working conditions.
Many of the nations that produce most of the world's tea are located in Asia: Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India.
Others are located in Africa: Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, and Tanzania.
Look how beautiful tea plantations can be!
