As I was doing some of my recent "blogging for a cause" (with Pain Awareness Month, and Invisible Illness Week, and Banned Books Week) I started to wonder about what other observances might be coming up. And - no surprise, really - there are a lot.
Some (like the ones above, and some that I'll be talking about as the month goes on) are about serious causes, but some (like today) are really more about having fun, and encouraging an appreciation of life's little treasures. And since I never turn down an excuse to be happy about something, I decided to start honoring some of those fun days.
So, on October 4th we celebrate National Taco Day. It's a day that encourages us to enjoy this traditional Mexican dish (which is now popular world-wide) and to share a good meal with friends and family. Definitely a holiday worth celebrating, if you ask me. :)
And it provided a perfect excuse to take my daughter out to lunch at her favorite Mexican food restaurant. All of the food there is great, but in honor of the occasion we went with one of my favorites, the chicken soft tacos.
My daughter traditionally just sticks to rice and beans (her absolute favorite food) but she agreed to get into the spirit of the day and share a taco with me. As you can see, it was a hit.
Now I want to hear from you! What type of taco is your favorite? Do you prefer to make them yourself, or let someone else do the cooking? Are you doing anything special to celebrate National Taco Day?
