The “hole-iest” food holiday – National Bagel Day – will forever be celebrated on January 15 thanks to bagel lovers across America. The new date was registered officially by Thomas’®Bagels in Chase’s Calendar of Events, the nation’s most comprehensive and authoritative reference on special events, holidays, federal and state observances, historic anniversaries and more. After years of sharing its national day of celebration with National Pizza Day, the bagel received its own new annual celebration after bagel lovers from across the country “hole”-heartedly voted on a new date and selected January 15 as the perfect day to demonstrate “dough-votion” to the iconic breakfast staple.
Thomas’ will celebrate National Bagel Day on the ground in Philadelphia with a celebration featuring a larger than life Thomas’ toaster that consumers can “pop” out of to capture their ultimate National Bagel Day memory, and a giant bagel wall where fans can snap a photo. Consumers across the country will also have the chance to get a taste of Thomas’ Bagels’ celebration, as the brand will give away free bagels for a year to a select group of lucky fans on its Facebook page on January 15.
Thomas’ dates back to 1880 when Samuel Bath Thomas created his original English Muffin in New York City using a secret process that included griddle baking to create a Nooks and Crannies® English Muffin. The company has since added bagels and breakfast breads, including a line of swirl breads, to its breakfast offerings. Today, Thomas’ sells the #1 English Muffin and #1 grocery bagel in the U.S. For a full list of Thomas’ products and where to buy them, please visit www.ThomasBreads.com.
