National Pretzel Day is a food holiday that is celebrated annually on April 26th. It is a day to celebrate and enjoy the popular snack food that has been a favorite for many years. The holiday was first created by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell in 2003 to honor the pretzel’s history and significance to the state’s culture and economy.

Pretzels are a baked bread snack that originated in Europe, particularly in Germany, where they were first made by monks in the 7th century. Today, pretzels come in many varieties, from soft and chewy to hard and crunchy, and can be topped with salt, cheese, cinnamon, and other flavors.

To celebrate National Pretzel Day, people often enjoy eating pretzels and trying out new recipes or variations on the classic snack. Many bakeries, restaurants, and food chains also offer special deals or discounts on pretzels on this day.
