 Croissant Day

On January 30 wake up and head straight to your favorite bakery to get a croissant for your breakfast, because it is Croissant Day.


The crescent shaped flaky and buttery pastry made by layering and rolling out leavened dough. While it is usually consumed plain, many variations of the pastry exist. In many parts of the world, bakeries bake croissants with chocolate, fruits, meat, vegetables, and cheese. Many people use croissants to make sandwiches. Some popular croissant sandwiches include egg salad sandwich, tuna sandwich, and cheese and ham sandwich.

Not French

Contrary to popular belief, croissants are not French in origin. Food historians believe that the Austrian kipferl is the ancestor of the present-day croissant. Legend has it that kipeferl, which is the German word for crescent, was created by some Viennese bakers as a way to celebrate the defeat of Ottoman invaders by the soldiers of Vienna. The bakers according to the story, fashioned their new creation in the form of the crescent they saw on the enemies flag.

It is thought that the pastry was popularized in France by Marie Antionette, the last queen of France.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have croissants for all your meals. Start with a plain croissant for breakfast, a croissant sandwich for lunch, and end the day with a chocolate or custard-filled croissant.
  • Try making croissants at home from scratch. Don't forget to share with friends, family, and co-workers.

Did You Know…

…that a cronut is both a croissant and a doughnut? The pastry was created by New York Chef Dominique Ansel.






Me: What’s the Wi-Fi password?

Bartender: You need to buy a drink first.

Me: OK, I’ll have a Coke.

Bartender: Three dollars.

Me: There you go. So what’s the Wi‑Fi password?

Bartender: “You need to buy a drink first.” No spaces, all lowercase.




One day, a fourteen-year-old weasel went down to the local dance hall. The bartender took one look at him and says, “You are under-aged. I can’t serve you beer.”

The weasel asks, “What can I have?”

The bartender replies, “I have bottled water, juice, energy drinks, and pop.”

“Pop!” goes the weasel.




Some Texans are mingling at the bar when an Oxford graduate walks in.

"Howdy, stranger," one Texan says. "Where are you from?"

The Oxford graduate answers, "I come from a place where we do not end our sentences in prepositions."

"Oh, I'm sorry," replies the Texan. "Where are you from, jackass?"




One of the shortest wills ever written:

“Being of sound mind, I spent all the money.”























Sad Update

Queen Elizabeth II was the last living head of state to have served in WWII.
