December 30 Is National Bacon Day

Everything is better with bacon, especially Bacon Day.

Bacon Day is observed annually on December 30th. According to the founders of Bacon Day, we are encouraged to eat a variety of bacon while watching Kevin Bacon movies, or movies with bacon in the title.

Here are a few fun facts about bacon:

  • Bacon is one of the oldest cuts of meat in history; dating back to 1500 BC.
  • 70% of all bacon in the US is eaten at breakfast time.
  • More than 2 billion pounds of bacon is produced each year in the US.
  • Bacon fat was the cooking fat of choice in most US households until after World War I, when prepackaged pig lard became commonly available.
  • Denmark consumes the most amount of pork in the world.
  • In the U.S., bacon is eaten as 70% breakfast, 11% lunch, 17% dinner and just 2% as a snack.
