If you enjoy the food associated with St. Patrick’s Day, then you’ll adore these other March holidays. They are ones that commemorate popular foods and encourage celebrants to eat them.


St. Patrick's Day is a major holiday in March, but it's not the only one. Consider celebrating a few others. They are holidays throughout this month that food lovers can enjoy because they focus on popular edibles most Americans eat.

Other March Holidays

National Peanut Butter Lover's Day, March 1
When was the last time you had a PB&J sandwich? Peanut butter is a global sensation. Honor this holiday by eating this creamy paste. Ways to consume peanut butter are endless.

National Frozen Food Day, March. 6
For most people, this holiday is code for 'break out the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream'. Celebrate by devouring a frozen treat. Clarence Birdseye produced the first line of frozen food in 1930. Contrary to folklore, his offerings weren't solely vegetables. They included 18 cuts of meat, spinach, peas, fruits and berries, fish fillets and Blue Point oysters.

Popcorn Lover's Day, March 13
Do you microwave or heat your popcorn over the stove? Your answer doesn't really matter. Regardless, the final result is a salty, fluffy crunchy snack. Participate in this holiday by munching on a bowl of this stuff.

National Potato Chip Day, March 14
Chef George Crum invented potato chips in 1853. Ever since, males and females of all ages across the world have been addicted to this thinly fried potato. For this holiday, give into temptation. Indulge in the potato chip you secretly crave, but avoid because of guilt.

Poultry Day, March 19
How many ways can you cook a chicken? Find out on this holiday. Honor this 24 hour event by baking or frying this bird or another type of poultry (turkey, geese, duck). You can also visit a local restaurant for a poultry meal.

Waffle Day, March 25
Waffles date back to ancient Greece, citizens of this land cooked a waffle-like pastry called oblelios between two metal plates. Subsequently, this food took off and now waffles are a common breakfast dish. Commemorate this holiday by eating a waffle. Top your waffle with butter and syrup or cheese and meat.


In conclusion, these March holidays are ones you can celebrate other than St. Patrick's Day or in conjunction with the arrival of St. Patty. Allow them to satiate your taste buds.
