Chocolate lovers! Did you think that today was just Christmas Eve? You couldn't be more wrong! It's also National Chocolate Day! I'm still trying to figure out who decided December 24th would be a great day to celebrate chocolate. Although, there are some who celebrate National Chocolate Day on December 28th (sometimes referred to as International Chocolate Day) and others on October 28th. I totally admit to being a card-carrying "chocoholic," I believe every day should be celebrated as Chocolate Day!
Have you ever wondered if you're a chocohlic? There are actually 19 signs that you are a chocoholic. Some of these include:
- Having your favorite overseas chocolate (check!)
- You cling to studies that prove chocolate is good for you. (check!)
- Chocolate is an incentive and a reward. (check!)
- You don't let chocolate stand in the way of dietary restrictions. (check!)
For those of you who are not yet confirmed, card-carrying chocoholics like myself and need a good reason to be one:
So go out today, indulge in and enjoy some chocolate (oops, salad) on National Chocolate Day!
