When is Chocolate Day? September 23??
There's a bit of confusion as to the actual date of this holiday. You see we have "Chocolate Day," World Chocolate Day, International Chocolate Day, and National Chocolate Day. Without even saying; it's ovious how these holidays can get all mixed up.
World Chocolate Day
Some calendars say World Chocolate Day is celebrated on September 23 but we also found reference to World Chocolate Day at this website that states: "Why not join in on World Chocolate Day on September 4th. World chocolate day is an annual event, with various events organised in different countries. The world day started first in 2003 and now events are organised annually on September 4th. The day itself was chosen because it is the birth date of the World Chocolate Day founder, the Italian, Valeria Lo Iacono."
International Chocolate Day
Some say "International Chocolate Day" is celebrated on September 13. If you do an Internet search; you will also find reference to National Chocolate Day on October 28, December 24, December 28, December 29, February 10 and July 7.
• We also have a National Milk Chocolate Day, celebrated on July 28.
• National Chocolate Anything Day - December 16
• American Chocolate Week--March 14-20
Is it possible that this holiday is celebrated more than one day?
Yes it is! In fact we have many holidays listed as a National Day but is also celebrated Internationally on a different date. It's also possible that this holiday started out as a Movable Holiday which could explain why so many different dates are listed. We think the biggest answer to this puzzle is simply the fact that there are so many chocolate holidays; everyone is getting them all mixed up. Also: Many times candy companies will promote chocolate on certain days and call that day "Chocolate Day" this in turn confuses the public into thinking that it's National Chocolate Day when it's actually just a "chocolate day promotion." Also chocolate is a very popular choice for fundraisers too. Oh well- - - We are still researching this holiday and if we ever find the creator of this holiday we will pass on the information. Until then, enjoy chocolate on all these dates by eating chocolate and sending chocolate day greeting- Yep, there's even greeting cards that say September 23 is Chocolate Day :)
