I have to say a big thanks to the Royal Bacon Society. I just got an e-mail from them saying that the national pork board is trying to give them credit for bacon day, and they wanted to set the record straight. Yes Bacon Day was created by the Bacon Boys in Boulder CO, and the Blog was created to spread the word. We aren't too concerned with getting the credit for it, but we did, and still do, think that it would be fun to see Bacon Day become something like Towel Day, or Talk like a pirate day. A fun event that people look forward to, where friends and family get together to have a fun day cooking with bacon. Another effect that we've kind of hoped for is to influence the sale of Bacon on that weekend. We figured that would be a good judge of how many people are participating, but a very lofty goal that we just kind of joke about.
I have to say that if The Royal Bacon Society, Lords of Bacon, Bacon Today, and many other bacon sites didn't promote Bacon Day and our site, we wouldn't have many of our readers, or as many people enjoying Bacon Day. With that said they deserve a lot of credit as well, so thank you! Hopefully this will be the Biggest Bacon Day yet. Last year it was held in at least 6 countries, so lets try to make it to 10. Please let us know if you are celebrating, and from where so we can add it to the list.
