When is "Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day"?
National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is always on November 14!
What is this holiday?
This holiday is all about taking the time to clean out your refrigerator.
Not very often do we keep our frig squeaky clean and all the food fresh. Because of our fast pace life we are forever pushing to the back those plastic containers and later finding a moldy mossy mess don't we.
So this holiday is a reminder to us all to clean out that frig at least once a year. Toss out the old food and wash down the shelves and walls of the frig too. Front to back, top to bottom now. You know you only have a few more days before Thanksgiving anyway and we all know how much extra room we need during the holiday season for leftover food right? So on this holiday get ahead of the game and Clean Out Your Refrigerator!
Origin of this holiday:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!
We did find references suggesting that Whirlpool Home Appliances was promoting Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. However, we went to their website and could'nt find any mention of this day.
Common speculation is that this day was created just in advance of Thanksgiving, to allow room for holiday leftovers which makes a lot of sense.
We did find reference to this holiday on several Greeting Card sites with the date as November 15.
