Do you know why a person is sometimes referred to as a “Big Wheel” or “The Big Cheese?” It means that person can afford to buy the whole wheel of cheese! We might never have known that if it wasn’t for National Cheese Day. Websites come up with this kind of information on these special days and we all benefit. (That little bit of info is from Foodimentary.)
National Cheese Day has it’s own Facebook page – (click here) with all kinds of cheesy fun pictures and links.
They also have a sister website with recipes and coupons (click here).
Here’s a cool survey they did:
