December 4 is National Cookie Day

- It’s a holiday we can all get behind: National Cookie Day!

That’s right. Because we need another reason to enjoy a sweet treat after Halloween and Thanksgiving, and right before the winter holidays, December 4 has been dubbed National Cookie Day.

According to, the unofficial holiday was started by the Blue Chip Cookie Company in 1987, and has been celebrated on December 4 in the U.S. ever since.

In honor of the day, all Great American Cookie stores are offering free chocolate chip cookies! Click here to find a store near you. 

You can also head to participating Whole Foods stores for cookies at just a quarter.
