Top 5 Ways To Celebrate World Chocolate Day
July 7th is a day of magic. A day where we celebrate taste, love, and stickiness. It’s a day where we can thank the food, that makes life on this rock a little more bearable. And, before you say anything, no, this holiday isn’t the same as Easter and Halloween. We may be able to chomp on our glorious sweets on those days, but it’s not a celebration of these miracles of taste. It’s a celebration of bunnies and ghosts. So how can we make sure we celebrate World Chocolate Day to the fullest, I’ve got your backs, guys, listen to me, and you’ll be a disgusting but happy mess by the end of the day.
#5 – Chocolate Movies
After a long day, chances are you’re exhausted, so the only thing left to do is watch a beloved movie. Not just any movie though, we have to honor the day of the chocolate after all. Films that come to mind, are Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), Charlie and the chocolate factory (2005), Chocolat (2000) and UP (2009). The last one may not have an obvious reason, so let me remind you, Kevin, the bird likes chocolate, Russel the cute child likes chocolate. Done.
#4 – Chocolate Spa
Did you know that dark chocolate is actually pretty good for your skin? Get ready for luxury for every part of your body. It’s full of antioxidants, which help to protect you from the sun, it moisturizes and soothes. Slather it on, and then lick it off. Day sorted.
There are so many choices for spa activities, facemasks, full body wrap, scrubs, I could go on. You don’t have to go to a fancy spa to rejuvenate, you can rediscover peace in your own home, or in a facility where they serve you hand and food. Both are great options, and in both, you are the boss. Facemask recipes
#3 – Chocolate For Dinner
That’s right, I said it. Dinner…chocolate dinner, you are masters of your own fate, and if you want to have chocolate for dinner you can.
I am not a believer in diets, but I do believe in taking care of yourself, so I understand your concerns. It’s not exactly the best thing for you. But you know what, International Chocolate day only comes once a year, and if you don’t celebrate it, you know you’ll regret it, So, chill out, and if you need to, have a side of spinach. There is a whirlwind of crazy recipes out there, all you need to do look.
#2 – Chocolate Drinks
Your first thought may have been hot chocolate, but that is just the beginning baby. I’m talking about alcohol. Alcohol is like that hot rebellious kid you had a crush on in high school, and chocolate is the sweet person who helps you with your homework. Mix those two together, and that’s your soulmate.
Unfortunately, people are disappointing and imperfect, but you know what, food is the best relationship I’ve ever had. Please don’t tell my therapist about this.
#1 – Chocolate Fountain
Everyone wants to be showered in the things they love, gold, honey, etc. Sadly, there is no such thing as a chocolate fountain, at least I don’t think so. If there is, there’s no question that I’m already there.
And the cool thing about chocolate fountains is you can dip anything in them, fingers, strawberries, more chocolate. Sometimes It’s fun to just lather yourself in it. And every time I’ve seen a chocolate fountain at a party, there have been some very happy guests.
I hope you enjoy the festivities as much as I do. I’ve already got chocolate scented candles for the occasion, which smell awesome by the way, I have stocked up on marshmallows, Nutella, and M&Ms. Make sure you drink plenty of water on the day, to keep the chocolate hangover at bay for as long as possible. Don’t let any of our dog friends have any, all animals for that matter. Chocolate is exclusive to humans.
Whatever you get up to on the day, make it a great one.
