National Chocolate Day


Today has to be one of the best days of the year.



It's National Chocolate Day. Does that make you smile?


We'll leave the dogs out of the blog today, because chocolate is bad for dogs. Actually that's good news for chocoholics like me, because we don't like to share our chocolate, even with our furry friends.


Think for a minute how good chocolate is for you. It can help you get your daily requirements of fruits.


Chocolate has been found to have a calming effect and cause a feeling of well being.




























Chocolate can help bring people together. I think addiction to chocolate may be hereditary. My grandparents both loved chocolate and I'm sure I inherited their love of that smooth, sweet flavor like no other.


We show our affection for others by offering chocolate. Think about Valentine's Day and Mother's Day and birthdays.


Well, I think I'll go take a bath and dream of what kind of chocolate I'll have today to celebrate National Chocolate Day.


Have a wonderful day, everyone and share some chocolate with someone you love.


Everyday is chocolate day around here because we live with Deerpark's Chocolate Legacy RN, better known as Fudge. He's my 24/7 chocolate treat.

Mom isn't a big chocolate fan so she says that we'll take Fudge instead, please!

Blog Mom says she must, must, must go celebrate this right away. I don't think she really needs to. She's getting quite pudgy, but she says it's if it's a national occasion then it's her civic duty to consume extra chocolate. Is that true?

lotsa licks, Lola

PeeS Mom also thinks that chocolate is a food group!

Mad about Craft said...

All that chocolate!!!! It's cruelty to dumb animals showing all that chocolate and not having any to hand to eat! Here in the UK we don't have a national chocolate day as far as I am aware. It's day that should be imported ASAP!!!!!

Marjie said...

Oh, now I need to send my daughters to Gertrude Hawk for some wonderful chocolates! Because you know that I love chocolate even though I do not eat chocolate baked goods.

I love that you threw Fudge in at the end. He's my favorite chocolate too!

I dislike truffles very much, but everything else (well not the bath) looks yummy - I think my belly got a bit bigger as I was reading. Happy Chocolate Day!! g
