According to The National Day Calendar, this unofficial holiday is sponsored by The National Confectioners Association. You may be wondering how to celebrate this delicious-sounding day. Sure, there are many paths to the nirvana that is a toasted marshmallow, but all the best things in life are shared. Get some friends together, make s’mores and have a ton of fun!
