It is January 30th and as such, it is National Croissant Day. This is a day that is celebrated by eating all sorts of croissants! Croissants are buttery, crescent-shaped rolls that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. If this explanation doesn't make you want to eat croissants now that you have an excuse to do so, then nothing probably will.
My entire life I have loved croissants. They've always been a treat that I couldn't necessarily get very often because my mom wouldn't make them all the time and she definitely wouldn't even buy them. Well, she didn't buy them until she found good ones at Costco. We now often have croissants in our home regularly and there is no way anyone will complain about that because we all love croissants.
The history of the croissant is an interesting one, the credit for the croissant we know today is given to an Austrian military officer named, August Zang, who opened up a Viennese bakery during WWII in 1939. This bakery was in Paris, France and introduced Parisians to Viennese styles of baking.
While it is cool and fun reading about croissants, I know it is always better to actually eat a croissant so, you should head to your nearest Starbucks as they often have the best croissants!
When you get your croissant make sure you take a picture with it or of it and post it on social media to prove that you are celebrating this wonderful national holiday! Eating bread has never been more guilt-less. Do it. You wont regret it!
