Let me start out by stating there are a number of ridiculously pointless holidays that have no business being celebrated or even noted in the calendar year. This, however, is in no way the case for ‘National Cheese Lover’s Day’ which takes place January 20th each year, and plays homage to the dairy holy-ness that fills our lives with happiness. And for those, like my wife, who have Lactose intolerance issues, I sincerely apologize to you for what you are missing out on. Hey, I was born to be short, others were born to have unibrows, and some have stomach issues that limit what they can eat. We all have some cross to bear, right?
But to get serious, being 100% honest, when was the last time you were consuming cheese in any form and you thought to yourself, there’s something else I’d rather be doing right now? It never happens. NEVER. Cheese is always the main attraction, or bare minimum it’s part of the ensemble that makes for any special occasion.
Cheese might have had mysterious beginnings that sprung up nearly 7,000 years ago, but there’s no mystery on its cultural relevance today.
So let’s take a brie-f moment to celebrate cheese in all its glorious forms.
