Jan2 Fun Holiday – Buffet Day

Want to hit the buffet table one last time before you start your New Year’s resolution? Then Buffet Day on January 2 is the fun food holiday for you.

Wear your favorite stretchy pants and enjoy a wide variety of dishes on Buffet Day.


How to Celebrate?

  • Visit your favorite buffet restaurant for lunch or dinner and try every dish on the buffet table. Just make sure you have time to nap after your meal.
  • Get together with friends to host a buffet lunch or dinner at home.
  • Host a themed potluck buffet where everyone brings a dish or 2 that fits the theme. Here are some ideas: sandwich buffet, salad buffet or a bacon buffet - where all dishes have to have bacon in them.

Did You Know…

…that the idea of a buffet table originated from an alcoholic beverage serving system in Sweden?
