NATIONAL MUFFIN DAY
Muffins are universally loved; thus, February 20 has been designated National Muffin Day. Muffins are a great quick breakfast solution, and if you want a good mid-morning light meal, Muffins will do good instead of toast. Since the 18th century, Americans have had American-style muffins; in Wales, English muffins have existed for over 1000 years. They are easy to make and give as a gift. As we celebrate National Muffin Day, you can grab a lot of muffins and enjoy eating them.
