Make yourself happy, choose a sweet indulgence.
Yes, there are people out there getting paid to come up with these national days and to get them officially proclaimed. I know our son often gets a laugh, or sometimes a smile, when I tell him it's National Coffee Cake Day or whichever other day it happens to be. As silly as it may seem, it is also fierce business for the various food industries and the public relations folks who represent them.
So enjoy the day knowing you have reason to celebrate your coffee break with cake.
