The 22nd of May is Vanilla Pudding Day.
You could celebrate by whipping up a vanilla pudding from scratch, or by cheating and using a powdered mix, or by just whipping open a “pudding cup” on the run.
You could also raise a glass today to the creator of Sherlock Holmes, English writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It’s his birthday; he was born on this day in 1859.
The earliest print mention of a “Vanilla Pudding Day” in May that CooksInfo is aware of dates from 2012:
“Happy International Day for Biological Diversity! While pondering biodiversity issues like endangered species, climate and ecosystem change, have some vanilla pudding, then go pick up a new guitar, because it’s also Buy-a-Musical-Instrument Day and National Vanilla Pudding Day.” Yorio, Kara. A day for every cause. Passaic, New Jersey: The Herald-News. 22 May 2012. Page B1, col. 1.
The holiday has been circulating on the Internet, though, since at least 2004, which is when CooksInfo first reported on it.
