Chicken Soup for the Soul & the History of Food Holidays

Thank you for sharing!

Last Updated on May 30, 2015 by Chef Mireille

Did you know today is Chicken Soup for the Soul Day? Did you ever wonder who comes up with these holidays? Well, believe it or not some are by presidential order. Basically, a person, group of people or company petitions the government and then after going through the House and the Senate, the President signs it into law. Many are petitioned by companies to promote their products. Others are pushed by the Department of Agriculture to promote certain industries.

I have to say I think it’s a monumental waste of the President’s time and I am happy to report no new food holidays have been signed by presidential order by Obama. He has a lot more bigger problems to worry about like ISIS and immigration reform.


Anyway, to give you some ideas to celebrate the “holiday” here’s a lineup of some soups with chicken and stewed chicken dishes that you can make to celebrate the day!
