How is this holiday celebrated?
National Pie Day is dedicated to the celebration of pie in any and every way possible by baking pies, eating pies and with pie contests too!

On this day we are encouraged to pass on the tradition of making homemade pies and not let the art of baking pies pass us by. Pass down those traditional recipes and teach your kids how to make them. Homemade pies make holidays special and full of great memories.

To celebrate National Pie Day, share the warmth by baking and giving a homemade pie to friends and family. If you don't have time to make it homemade, stop by your favorite pie shop or grocery store and bring home a gift of love and enjoyment for the whole family.​

About
National Pie Day, is an annual celebration of pies started in the mid-1970s by Boulder, Colorado nuclear engineer, brewer and teacher Charlie Papazian after he declared his own birthday, January 23, to be National Pie Day. Since 1986, National Pie Day is sponsored by the American Pie Council.

In 2014, the American Pie Council partnered with Paramount Pictures in promoting the romantic thriller film Labor Day in conjunction with National Pie Day. (A pie-making scene features prominently in the film, and the film's general release was within a few days of National Pie Day.)

The APC distributed a promotional poster to pie shops and bakeries featuring images of the film's stars Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, and Gattlin Griffith in the pie-making scene. New York Post writer Lou Lumenick noted dryly that the scene was an "eccentric choice for a promotion" since Brolin's character is an escaped murderer and "before they all make pies together, he abducts them from a supermarket and ties both of them up... A bond does emerge between Brolin and his hostages before he surrenders to police. But still." The poster is captioned in part "It makes the time we spend together, just a little sweeter. Pie. Grab a slice of life."

Notwithstanding any problematic overtones, though, Variety's take on the scene was "What damage [the 1999 film] American Pie did for the pie industry, Labor Day has reversed.
