National Cocoa Day!

What does this holiday celebrate?
This holiday celebrates all the uses of "Cocoa" but most information about this holiday relates it to the hot cocoa drink. So on National Cocoa Day make good use of that container of dry cocoa in your cabinet and make yourself a nice hot cup of homemade cocoa. I can just taste it now... that nice warm feeling of the drink, that nice thick layer of cream on top and that nice dust of cocoa on the top of the cream. Yummmm, pure heaven!


Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of December was picked to celebrate this holiday and why the 13th day?? That's the question, but unfortunately...

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!

What is ?
"Hot chocolate (also known as hot cocoa, drinking chocolate, or just cocoa) is a heated beverage that typically consists of chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and sugar." "While hot chocolate is generally thought of as a drink consumed for pleasure, recent studies have suggested that hot chocolate possesses health benefits due to antioxidants that can be found in cocoa." "Until the 19th century, hot chocolate was even used medicinally to treat ailments such as stomach diseases."

"The first chocolate beverage is believed to have been created by the Mayan peoples around 2000 years ago, and a cocoa beverage was an essential part of Aztec culture by 1400 A.D." "The beverage became popular in Europe after being introduced from Mexico in the New World, and has undergone multiple changes since then." "Today, hot chocolate is consumed throughout the world and comes in multiple variations including the very thick cioccolata densa served in Italy, and the thinner hot cocoa that is typically consumed in the United States."
