It is unclear who created this awesome but unofficial holiday, but we think that whoever it was, deserves a big slice of cake after a huge bowl of ice cream!

Ends the Meal

Desserts are usually a sweet course served after the end of a meal. While in the past typically this meal took place at the end of the day, in modern times desserts can accompany a mid-day meal as well. Desserts are also known as sweets in many parts of the world.

This sweet holiday is also called National Eat an Extra Dessert Day in the in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • Guiltlessly indulge yourself in a little extra dessert on this day and inform everyone you know about this happy holiday. We are convinced that it will soon become everyone's favorite made-up holiday!
  • Spend some time in the kitchen whipping up some delicious desserts to share with your friends, family and co-workers.
  • Have a dessert party! Ask guests to bring their favorite dessert to share and spend the evening enjoying the desserts. Make sure you are all equipped with healthy food for the sugar crash afterwards!

Did You Know…

…that the word dessert comes from the French word desservir, which means to clear the table?
