Yes, It’s Coffee Time! – September 29th Is National Coffee Day
You get a cookie to go along with your coffee if you can name the movie this was from. 🙂
September 29th is International Coffee Day, otherwise known as National Coffee Day in the United States and at least 5 other countries including Canada, England, Ethiopia, Malaysia, and Sweden. For some, coffee is the only thing that gets them moving in the morning. For others like myself, it’s less about the caffeine and more about the aroma and flavor. I don’t need coffee to get me moving, but I admit it doesn’t hurt the cause.
Wikipedia — International Coffee Day (also known as Coffee Day or National Coffee Day) is an annual event observed on September 29 in a handful of countries for the celebration and enjoyment of the popular beverage coffee. This day is also used to promote fair trade coffee and to raise awareness for the plight of the coffee growers.
LiveScience.com — Coffee seems to have become as synonymous with America as apple pie. And research is showing our java habit may not be so bad after all. Plenty of health and other benefits are hiding out in your morning cup ‘o Joe, studies suggest.
For instance, in a study published in 2010 in the journal CancerEpidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, researchers found that regular coffee drinkers have a 39 percent decreased risk of head and neck cancer.
