October 25, 2016 Holiday – World’s Pasta Day

Pasta is a global food beloved by people of all ages and nationalities on all five continents. And for those pasta lovers around the world, there’s a special holiday celebrating their favorite food, World’s Pasta Day observed on October, 25! How to celebrate the observance? Just cook your favorite pasta dish at home and share with loved once or go to a restaurant and enjoy traditional Italian pasta cooked by a professional chef. Also, don’t forget to surprise your friends and family with these interesting facts about pasta they’ve probably never heard of.

  1. We know pasta as typical Italian food, but the first recorded reports of people eating pasta actually came from China, as early as 5,000 B.C.
  2. There are over 600 different types and shapes of pasta around the world, with penne, spaghetti, and macaroni being the most popular among them.
  3. The traditional Italian way of cooking pasta is called ‘al dente’ (al-DEN-tay) literally meaning “to the tooth,” which is the way you check pasta for readiness. The perfectly cooked pasta should be firm, but tender.
  4. Eating spaghetti with a spoon and a fork is a solely American habit. If you ask for a spoon in a restaurant in Italy they’ll shake their head incomprehensibly. Why? Because Italians simply twirl a fork against the plate!
  5. Italians are number 1 pasta eaters in the world consuming about 600 million kilometers of spaghetti a year which will be enough to wrap around the Earth 15,000 times! But did you know that Venezuelans and Tunisians actually come in second and third with only half that amount? Who knew!
  6. Eating pasta just like eating chocolate will make you happier. No joking! The carbohydrates in pasta increase the body’s production of serotonin, that is believed to trigger the feelings of happiness and well-being.
  7. Pasta is an ideal partner for other nutritious foods in a healthy diet, such as vegetables and beans, fish, and protein-rich poultry and meats.

There are plenty of reasons why gift giving is good not only for your recipient but also has many mental and emotional benefits for you. A wonderful way to connect with others, it allows plenty of opportunities to establish and re-establish all sorts of relationships. In personal gift-giving, especially to those far away, it’s often a way for the giver to reduce guilt. It’s a great replacement for not being there with the person, especially when it comes to long distance relationships. It has become a lot easier now to order a gift online and send it anywhere in the world with the same or next day delivery. It gives us satisfaction when we find the right gift and that brings us emotional happiness. Also, when you give, your generous gesture is more likely to be rewarded later in life either by the person you gave to or someone else. Such an exchange of emotions and gifts promotes a sense of trust between people, creates a special bond and is central to our mental and physical health. Many studies show that being generous is beneficial for your health in general. It helps to reduce stress, which is linked to many health problems and therefore has been proved to increase physical health and longevity in elderly and people with chronic illness.

Share your love and positive emotions with the ones you care about. Surprise them with a hamper filled to the brim with delicious sweet and savory treats including gourmet cheese, honey cake, invigorating coffee, refreshing organic Earl Grey tea, chocolate, and many more treats perfect for breakfast or midday break with friends.
