A Hidden Story Behind the National Perogie Day
Each year on October 8th it is a special day for Grandma`s Food Family. Today we are celebrating the joy and deliciousness of National Pierogi Day! A unique holiday that is not yet a legally recognized national holiday but exists in all sorts of calendars. Pierogi is an Eastern European region’s food according to its origin. But researchers still haven’t found the roots to the history behind this day. There is very little information about when exactly it came into being, who proposed it, and why October 8th was chosen of all the days in a year. We will find a clear history behind it as soon as the researchers find some evidence. What we know for sure is that perogies deserve their little holiday, the perfect day for you to enjoy it!
