National Pretzel Day 2010?

Today is National Pretzel Day 2010. I just found out there is a national day just for pretzels.
They are my favorite snack. Who came up with the idea of an entire day devoted to pretzels?
How are you going to celebrate national pretzel day?

Monday April 26, 2010 is National Pretzel Day - a day to celebrate the art of pretzel making and the history of the pretzel - the world's oldest snack.

To celebrate it, Pretzel Time is encouraging customers to visit their local shop and sing a song of your choice and get a free pretzel. And if you can't carry a tune, don't worry.
Just mention National Pretzel Day and they'll give you the baked dough for free.

According to Food Timeline, the pretzel were enjoyed during the ancient times, especially during Lent.

National Pretzel Day started 27 years ago, in 1983, when a Pennsylvania congressman wanted a special day named for his favorite food. The tradition has since spread across the country, although it's not officially recognized.
