I'll bet you didn't know it was National Popcorn Day ...
No, neither did I, but now we do, and we have the perfect excuse to whip up a bowlful of that hot and buttery snack along with some sweet steaming cocoa. :)
So why not corral your clan and "pop" in an afternoon movie ~ a fun way to celebrate the end of the "work week."
A Popcorn Song
Sing a song of popcorn
When the snowstorms rage;
Fifty little round men
Put into a cage.
Shake them till they laugh and leap
Crowding to the top;
Watch them burst their little coats
Pop!! Pop!! Pop!!
~ Nancy Byrd Turner
Of course, it loses a bit in translation when you consider we only ever make microwave popcorn anymore. That's okay, it's still a mighty cute poem!
