19 January – Popcorn Day
It’s Popcorn Day!
Popcorn has been around for centuries. It originated in Mexico, but eventually made its way to the United States. In 1948, archaeologists in the state of New Mexico discovered ancient popcorn ears that were at least 5,600 years old! The Native Americans (in both North and South America) popped their corn by throwing it on hot stones over a fire.
Today, popcorn is a common household snack that is enjoyed by many people all over the world. To celebrate Popcorn Day, make your favourite kind of popcorn and enjoy it while watching a movie with your friends!
