Since I operate a "Sweet" Enterprise in town...I always try and make sure we know when the "holidays" are...and how we should help celebrate them. (Even the "bizarre" ones)! Too fun!
So, in my research...I discovered there is a National S'Mores is August 10th! If you want to be "One Up" can order SugarPlums CupCakery S'Mores Cupcakes to help in the celebration...and just "sit" around the fire! LOL!!

Here is the scoop...and of course, the 'traditional' S'Mores recipe!!! Sweet Celebrations to all!

National S'mores Day
When: Always on August 10th
S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!
National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately placed in August...campfire prime time. But, don't limit your consumption of S'ores to the campfire. They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven or microwave.
The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was first discovered by Girl Scouts. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"
While much is written about National S'mores Day, our research has been unable to verify that this is an officially recognized national day (which requires an act of Congress). Don't let that stop you from celebrating this day with a few S'mores.

How to make S'mores:
Chocolate candy bar
Honey Graham Crackers
Break off a square of Graham cracker
Add a piece of Chocolate.
Toast a big marshmallow over the campfire.
Add the hot marshmallow.
Top it with another graham Cracker.
Eat , savor and enjoy!
Note: You can make S'mores in the microwave. Just put them together and pop them into the microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds.

*****Thanks to for the interesting info!!!
