Throw Out Your Leftovers Day!

How is this holiday celebrated?
This day is celebrated by reminding us to throw out our leftovers!
ECard sites say "Dump the junk and take some yummie bites of fresh goodies."
We assume this holiday is referring to the leftovers from our Thanksgiving dinners.  Most of our research shows that this day is celebrated by sending fun greeting cards and enjoying the last few crumbs of Thanksgiving.

Why would we want to throw out our leftovers on this day?
Well Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago and it only takes a few days for leftover food to go bad and make you feel ill or give you stomach problems. The thing is, bacteria can grow in any food that needs refrigerating when left at room temperature for longer than two hours. So the idea is after a couple of days of heating and cooling and heating and cooling your left over, it's best to throw them out on this day.

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites but no reference to the background of the holiday.

This holiday is still 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.

We found plenty of recognition from calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday.
So enjoy the day and have fun with it. Live everyday like a holiday!

Definition of Leftovers
"Leftovers are the uneaten edible remains of a meal after the diner has finished eating." "Food scraps that are not considered edible (such as bones or the skins of some vegetables and fruits) are not regarded as leftovers, but rather as waste material; any remaining edible portions constitute the leftovers."

Wikipedia says "The ultimate fate of leftovers depends on where the meal was eaten, the preferences of the diner, and the prevailing social culture." "Home cooking leftovers are often saved to be eaten later." "This is facilitated by being in a private environment, with food preserving facilities such as airtight containers and refrigeration close at hand." "Some leftover food can be eaten cold from the refrigerator, while others may be reheated in a microwave or a conventional oven, or mixed with additional ingredients and recooked to make a new dish such as bubble and squeak."
(soup is a great way to get use up leftovers too!)
