It's five o'clock in the morning and the radio man told me some time ago: It's cake day in America.

Please, who can explain me the sense of this day?

It's weird, it seems every day has some kinda celebration attached to it. Cake day (while good sounding) is a fictitious celebration.

Don't tell the other mods tho, they bought it & they're all busy baking in the kitchen...

Well it seems Wolfgang knows more than we do about our holidays? As to the sense in it, I'm not sure? The US/North America being something of a melting pot of people from all over the world, who have brought traditions from the homeland with them. There are a lot of traditions I'm not familiar with.

 

I remember the story of a daughter who cut the ends off her ham, and asked her mother why she always cut ends  off the ham. The Response was because my mother always did.

The daughter asked her mother the same question and was told, that it was because the ham was too big to fit the pan she had. Instead of getting a bigger pan it had become a family tradition to cut the ends off the ham?  

Sometimes Traditions carried down through families come about out of strange reasoning?

 

I had never hear of National Cake Day, so googled it and this is what I found.

 

National Cake Day November 26, 2013 is

It’s National Cake Day! On this day, we celebrate one of the world’s favorite desserts—cake. The cake we know and love today evolved from early leavened breads, which were sweetened with honey, fruit, and nuts. Did you know that the word “cake” comes from the Old Norse word, “kaka,” meaning a baked flour confection?

Whether you prefer vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, or even the pineapple-upside-down variety, grab a slice of your favorite cake to celebrate this delicious day! Happy National Cake Day!

 

If I were guessing with Thanksgiving day coming up Thursday, and Mothers,cooking all week to prepare for family get togethers, things were prepared in shifts(due to limited oven space) so everything was ready for the Feast? I know at my house the wife said she was starting the pies for Thursday tonight.

I suspect Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker have something to do with starting this.
