NATIONAL GREASY FOODS DAY
National Greasy Foods Day is celebrated annually on October 25th.
Although not the healthiest of choices, every once in awhile it is okay to enjoy some greasy food, when it is done in moderation. From fried chicken, pizza, nachos, french fries to bacon and hash brown potatoes, we all like a treat in our regular diet.
