I have culled these dates from a variety of sources, and no single source. Please don't be upset if I tell you National Gum Drop Day is on one day, while another list tells you another date. I'll add as many dates/holidays as I can find, even when they overlap or disagree, and beg your humble indulgence if you find I am incorrect or misinformed. By all means, if you learn of more dates for this month, let me know in the comment section and I'll be happy to update the list for the benefit of foodies everywhere.
