National (whatever) Day

I am quite happy with Causes having their National Day, usually fuelled by a charity or health group to raise awareness of issues in the community eg National Prostate Cancer Day, but this is just over the top!

I was informed that: 5th February is World Nutella Day,
and 16th February is National Tim Tam Day - McKenzie’s (makers of Bi-carb soda) emailed me recipes to celebrate.

So now companies are promoting their products, piggybacking on our sense of charity, awareness & goodwill that comes with “National xx Days”. Have you heard of others?

Those into social media might know of more.

For those into serious marketing opportunities and million dollar opportunities.

My take is to note there are at least 104 days of the year to avoid real estate agents. :joy:

That is an interesting one because it is religious or cultural, not about pancakes, per se. Thus can be differentiated from what some call ‘Hallmark Holidays’ (in North America at least) that were originally popularised by the greeting card industry.

  • British ice cream maker has created a Viagra and champagne flavour
  • Each serving contains 25mg of the erectile dysfunction drug
  • Viagra recommends a dose of 50mg per person - i.e. two scoops
  • The secret celebrity client was said to be ‘very happy with the result’

A British ice-cream maker has invented a dessert which can help with erectile dysfunction - by flavouring the batch with Viagra.
The Arousal flavour contains around 25mg of Viagra per scoop. It was created on specific request from a celebrity customer of South Wales ice cream company, Lick Me I’m Delicious.
Inventor Charlie Harry Francis added the Viagra to the ice cream and used champagne for flavour to complete the bespoke recipe.

Well, I’m a bit late for the 13th, so I hope it counts that I’m eating pikelets tonight.

I think you can safely assume that the only people taking that day seriously are the management of the Nutella corporation. Although now that I think about it, some Nutella would be pretty nice on these somewhat stodgy pikelets I’m eating.
