When is "Sinkie Day"?
This unique Holiday has been reserved for the day after Thanksgiving when most kitchens are packed full of leftover foods and desserts.
What is this Holiday for?
This holiday is for snacking over the kitchen sink!
"Thanksgiving leftovers provide a great excuse to partake in this national pastime of dineing over the kitchen sink." The day after Thanksgiving is a munch time that requires us to munch on this and munch on that..... leaving us with no need for a plate."" All we really need is the kitchen sink where we lean over the sink and nibble away while crumbs and food juices fall in the sink for easy clean up.
