National Oatmeal Muffin Day

We’re not exactly sure how many people enjoy oatmeal muffins every day, but we do know that this type of muffin is extremely popular. That’s probably why the holiday National Oatmeal Muffin Day was created and is now celebrated annually on December 19th. For people who already enjoy one of these muffins for breakfast every day, this holiday is pretty easy to celebrate.

Those who don’t eat a daily oatmeal muffin or have never eaten one are going to have to make sure that they buy one from their local bakery or grocery store. Once that’s done, however, celebrating this holiday is as simple as enjoying one of the tastiest and healthiest muffins on the planet.

Some Facts About Muffins

We’re going to take a moment to talk about not only oatmeal muffins but all muffins. Below are some of the facts we’ve learned about muffins that we would like to now share with you. Enjoy them while you’re eating your oatmeal muffin on this holiday. Oh, and don’t forget the milk.

  • While the term muffin is a corruption of the Old French word “moufflet,” muffins weren’t invented until the 18th century.
  • Muffins are quick breads whose name means “small cakes.”
  • Most American muffins are sweet, but some are savory, such as cornbread muffins.

Observing National Oatmeal Muffin Day

National Oatmeal Muffin Day can be observed alone or with friends, and we feel that makes it a very versatile holiday. Some people simply like to have one of these muffins while watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee, while others like to serve a whole pan of them to friends and family.

Some people want to enjoy one while they’re enjoying the silence of the morning, and others simply want to grab a muffin on their way out the door. No matter how you celebrate this holiday, however, everyone should take the time to use the hashtag #NationalOatmealMuffinDay on their social media account posts for the day.
