When is this holiday celebrated?
This holiday is observed & celebrated on December 7 every year.

What is this holiday about?
It's about celebrating cotton candy! That sweet sugar spun treat.

Definition of Cotton Candy
Cotton candy (American English), candy floss (British English / Hiberno English), or fairy floss (Australian English) is a form of spun sugar. Since it consists of mostly air, servings are large. Many people consider eating cotton candy part of the quintessential experience of a visit to a fairground or circus. The most popular color of cotton candy is pink, though any color can be made. Eating cotton candy is often considered only one part of its allure; the second part is the act of watching it being produced in a machine.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of December was picked to celebrate cotton candy?? That's the question for sure. Cotton candy is not really popular during the winter months in the United States and since this is a U.S. holiday, I would of thought it would be celebrated during the summer.  I guess who ever created this holiday knows something we don't.

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!

It was introduced in 1904 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton, at the St. Louis World's Fair as "Candy Floss"with great success, selling 68,655 boxes at the then-high $0.25, half the cost of admission to the fair.

Tootsie roll of Canada Ltd. has a bagged product called "Fluffy Stuff" that claims it was first introduced at the 1893 world fair.

Cotton Candy Making
"First sugar is melted into a liquid state and then spun it in the cotton candy machine." "The machine forces the liquid through tiny holes that shape and cool the liquid sugar." After it cools, the sugar becomes a solid again."
National Confectioners Association
