Feeling down after the passing of April Fools'? Fear not, my friends, for today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Hey, we've observed National Pancake Day, National Napping Day, and National Squirrel Appreciation Day -- so why not?
The actual sandwich supposedly first surfaced in the 40s during World War II, when PBJ became part of the military's rations. (I guess no one had the thought to combine salty and sweet spreads prior to that point. Mmm hmm.)
Should you still be feeling the PBJ spirit, you might check out this site or this site for some National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day e-cards. Yep, they actually make those.
From us to you, happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Enjoy. Just make sure to wipe your hands before typing.
