National Noodle Day - October 6

National Noodle Day – October 6


Noodles come in many varieties and National Noodle Day, which is celebrated each year on October 6, celebrates them all.

The word noodle derives from the German word “nudel”.

Noodles are made by some type of unleavened dough being rolled out and cut into a variety of shapes.  Long thin strips are likely the most popular, however some of the other shapes such as; tubes, strings, shells, flat, wide and etc., have their fans also.   Boiling,  pan-frying or deep-frying them are the common ways of preparing the noodles.  They then can be eaten alone, with butter or with a sauce or used in soups, casseroles, salads, lasagna, and etc.

It is a question as to where the noodle was first invented but it is known that it has been a staple in many parts of the world for over 1800 years.

There is a report that, in 2002, archaeologists along the Yellow River in China found an earthenware bowl containing some 4000-year-old noodles which had been well preserved.


Have a bowl of your favorite noodles and post on social media using #NationalNoodleDay to encourage others to do so as well.


Within our research, we have been unable to find the creator of National Noodle Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.
