It's Not Just Christmas Eve Today... It's Also National Chocolate Day!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC

Chocolate lovers! Did you think that today was just Christmas Eve? You couldn't be more wrong! It's also National Chocolate DayI'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!)

 

Check out all 19 signs that you are chocoholic on BuzzFeed.com's site.

 

For those of you who are not yet confirmed, card-carrying chocoholics like myself and need a good reason to be one:

 

Think of chocolate as a salad

 

 

So go out today, indulge in and enjoy some chocolate (oops, salad) on National Chocolate Day!

And if you live in the Charlotte area here are some suggestions about where to go out and get yourself some absolutely divine chocolate today or any day of the year, for that matter.

 

  • The Secret Chocolatier: (my personal favorite). They now have two locations in Charlotte. One at 2935 Providence Road and one at 11318 Community House Road. The Secret Chocholatie also holds chocolate making classes. Check them out.

For me, any day is a good day for chocolate, especially dark chocolate.

Have a very special holiday weekend.

Sybil Campbell ~ good morning, Sybil... I think I don't need a special day for chocolate in my house either! And I believe if you do some research, there are probably at least two days each month devoted to something chocolate.
