August 10, 2020 – National S’mores Day | National Lazy Day

Who Invented S’mores Anyway? Pull Up A Couch and Get Lazy While We Follow The Sticky Trail.

Welcome to  August 10th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate some sticky history and getting lazy.  

The next time you’re sitting around a campfire enjoying a toasted marshmallow with melted chocolate between two graham crackers consider telling the yarn of the fellow who started it all.  By some accounts that would be Alec Barnum, who created the first smores in the late 1800s.  But not much is known about this entrepreneur except that his sticky trail can be found across the internet with all kinds of myths and legends.  You could also cite the recipe published in 1927 in The Trampling and Trailing With The Girl Scouts, though they were not the first to toast a marshmallow.  Even the ancient Egyptians had a recipe for that.   One thing is certain, we are a nation obsessed with this triple flavor combo that appears in cupcakes, brownies and even martinis.  However you like to celebrate National S’mores Day, the origin story is up for grabs.  

Anna: Marlo, are you going to do your segment or not?

Marlo: Nope.

Anna: What are you talking about? Why?

Marlo: I’m celebrating National Lazy Day. 

Anna: Well, if you’re not doing it, then I won’t either. I want to be lazy too.

John: Uh…guys? Are you seriously not finishing the show?

Marlo and Anna: No. You can if you want.
