National Taco Day – October 4

NATIONAL TACO DAY

 National Taco Day is celebrated annually on October 4th.

Tacos are loved and eaten by millions, each day, in either hard shells or soft shells, with a variety of different fillings.

The history of the taco predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico.  There is actual anthropological evidence that the native people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos that were filled with small fish.  Bernal Diaz del Castillo documented, at the time of the Spanish conquistadors, the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans, which was a meal that was arranged by Hernan Cortes for his captains in Coyoacan.   It is unclear as to why the Spanish used their word “taco” to describe this native food.

Many restaurants offer specials for National Taco Day.  Check around on social media to find some of these great deals in your local community.

HAPPY NATIONAL TACO DAY!
