National Croissant Day

National Croissant Day is an unofficial holiday observed on the first Friday of May in the United States. The day was established by a group of croissant enthusiasts who wanted to celebrate their favorite food, and it has been celebrated annually since. Starting out as the Austrian crescent-shaped pastry called 'Kipferl', the modern croissant that is widely known today was born when the French adopted it and started making it with puffed pastry.

The flaky pastry can be filled with savory or sweet fillings but a plain croissant is also a delicious treat, particularly with a fresh cup of morning coffee.
