It's May 1st. Already.

Lots of things have happened on May 1st. For example:

On this date in 1964, the first BASIC program runs on a computer (Dartmouth)

On this date in 1997, the Howard Stern Radio Show premieres in San Diego CA on KIOZ 105.3 FM

May 1st is also known as National Chocolate Parfait Day.

There are lots of birthdays in this month too, I'm sure. But don't you just want to know what National Food Day it is when your birthday comes around? Sure you do!


I found this on an O-Deck thread, and thought it'd be fun if you guys figured out your national day too. So go on! Click the link and tell us what food day is your birthday!

Mine is National Vodka Day.


As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for foodirthdays! It is the Open Forum, after all.
