National Bagel Day is January 15, 2019

The ‘hole-iest’ food holiday of the year is getting a new date thanks to Thomas'® Bagels, the largest producer of grocery store bagels in the U.S. After years of watching National Bagel Day share the spotlight with National Pizza Day, Thomas’ hosted a poll where hundreds of bagel lovers across the country “hole”-heartedly voted in favor of changing the date and giving the iconic breakfast staple its very own day of appreciation.

January 15 has officially been declared the new annual celebration of National Bagel Day! While people will always appreciate the sauce, crust and cheese on a delicious slice of pizza, bagels are done sharing the spotlight. Plus, pizza wasn’t even invented until 1889 whereas the bagel can trace its roots (or dough!) back to 1610!

Thomas’ will celebrate the milestone throughout the month with online giveaways, sampling at local retailers and a one-of-a-kind pop-up event in Philadelphia that should not be missed.
