It seems like there’s a holiday for just about everything imaginable these days. From National Best Friend Day to National Cheesecake Day, no matter where your interests lie, surely there’s a holiday to celebrate. But did you know that there’s also a National Taco Day?! Well, there is—and this year, it’s falling on October 4. As if you needed an excuse to enjoy some delicious tacos.
The History of the Taco
Before we get into more detail about National Taco Day, let’s briefly recap the history of the taco as we know it. It’s widely believed that the first tacos were served up in Mexico in the 18th century, consisting of a tortilla wrapped around some sort of spiced meat. Then, in the 19th century, it’s believed that Mexican immigrants first brought tacos into the United States (most likely to street vendors in Los Angeles). From there, the popularity of the taco grew exponentially, and the rest is, well…history.
Celebrating National Taco Day
With National Taco Day coming up on October 4, now is a good time to consider how you’ll celebrate. Maybe you’ll take it easy and make some tacos from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Brown a little taco meat, chop up some veggies, and maybe cook some rice on the side. Sounds good enough, right? But what if you don’t want to bother with prepping, cooking, and cleaning up? Are you destined to run through your local fast food drive through for some non-authentic, Americanized tacos?
