Martha McKinnon, cookie loving certified yoga instructor and passionate home cook, says:

In addition to National Cookie Day, a day perfect for celebrating with the cookie of your choice, there are several National Days dedicated to specific cookies, such as the Fig Newton, Brownie, Gingersnap, and Oatmeal Cookie. In fact there is a day dedicated to one type of cookie or another eleven months of the year, giving us plenty of days to celebrate with cookies all year long. The annual National Cookie Day fun kicks off with Shortbread Day on January 6 and wraps up with National Pfeffernuesse Day, December 23.

Cookies may be small, but they are a big business, just ask the Girl Scouts. The multi-billion dollar US cookie industry all began when the first commercially baked cookie, the Animal Cracker was introduced in 1902. It is probably no surprise that the US leads the world in cookie baking and cookie eating, spending more than $550 million annually on Oreos alone.

I bet you can guess what the most popular cookie baked in US homes is. Yes, it’s the chocolate chip cookie. In fact, the chocolate chip cookie is so popular it has a whole week dedicated to its celebration. The second week of March is Chocolate Chip Cookie Week.

The next time you are looking for a reason to celebrate with cookies, there may be a National Cookie Day to celebrate. Here’s a complete list of all the National Cookie Days I could find. I hope you will mark your calendar with your favorite cookies and add some cookie fun to your life.
