National Popcorn Day 2017

Today, January 19, is National Popcorn Day.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, love popcorn.   With butter, of course.   In the early 16th century popcorn was used in headdresses worn during Aztec ceremonies.   Early Spanish explorers were fascinated by the corn that burst into what looked like a white flower.   Popcorn became popular in the United States in the mid 1800s.   By 1900 horse drawn popcorn wagons were going through the streets of Chicago.   Of course, you cannot go to the movies without buying and eating hot buttered popcorn.

  1. I couldn’t imagine a movie without popcorn. We always purchase the largest size and many of our theaters offer a free popcorn refill on large sizes. So they we have more popcorn at home for several days. Of course, extra butter is also a necessity. Thanks for reading and commenting. And enjoy some popcorn at your next movie.
