Woohoo, it’s the 24th of October — Baloney Day!
In some American towns, the highlight of the year is Baloney Day. A Baloney Day is held the first weekend of every September in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
If you think you know all that there is to know about Bologna, we’d like to ask if you know the difference between Rag Baloney, Ring Baloney, Lebanon Baloney, Sweet Baloney, Pickled Baloney and “regular” Baloney?
To observe the day, you could make a baloney sandwich, or have some fried baloney (we’re looking at you, Newfoundland.) If you want to get fancy, you would try making some Baloney Canapés.
Is baloney good or bad for you? What about the sodium nitrite in it?
Bologna Day is even celebrated all over Europe. The Bologna Day in Europe, however, is a little different — it’s to celebrate the Bologna Declaration (as in the town of Bologna, Italy), which involves standardizing what’s required for a university degree in Europe. The first European Bologna Day was held in Austria on 21 June 2000.
