National Candy Corn Day, Zero Tasking Day, October 30th



National Candy Corn Day

Now, who doesn't love Candy Corn? Everyone loves Candy Corn, or at least we must pretend to because over 20 million pounds of Candy Corn is sold around Halloween each year. Candy Corn was first created in the 1880s by the Wunderlee Candy Company, and has been a Halloween favorite ever since. If you want to make your own homemade Candy Corn to celebrate, check out the recipe here. Other National Candy Corn Day activities include Candy Corn hunts (hide candy all around your house, and you know that you will be finding when you hide your Easter Eggs) Candy Corn shuffleboard, and Candy Corn and frosting sculpture contests. If you want to decorate with Candy Corn you can string it up like popcorn, or even make a beaded curtain with lots of Candy Corn strings.

Zero Tasking Day

Or, if you find that all of those activities are a bit overwhelming, remember it is Zero Tasking Day, so theoretically, you don't have to do anything today. Just try to convince your boss that it is okay to celebrate such a holiday.

I mean no offense toward you, my dear, dear friend, but candy corn is an abomination.

I don't like it much either, but it was much easier to blog about Candy Corn Day than Plan Your Own Funeral Day, and believe me, I tried... but, I just ended up sounding awfully gloomy.
