In 1987 Matt Nader of the San Francisco-based Blue Chip Cookie Company created Cookie Day, saying: “It’s just like having National Secretaries Day… It will just be a fun thing to do.” This fun and sweet holiday was also championed by The Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. Although the day did not originate with him, some details about it can be found in Random House’s “The Sesame Street Dictionary”, which was published in the 1980s as well. Since then, the word got around the globe that there was much tasty fun to be had on December 4th, and people from various countries the world over began to celebrate Cookie Day. In fact, a number of variations on Cookie Day are also celebrated around the world such as Oatmeal Cookie Day and Bake Cookie Day. This is likely due to one of the greatest things about cookies: they come in hundreds of shapes and sizes and are relatively simple to make. (daysoftheyear)
