Happy News: National Taco Day
October 4, 2017 4:02pm CST
October 4th is National Taco Day, another of those made up holidays celebrated once a year. Taco Bell is offering a National Taco Day Gift Set. It includes four classic Taco Bell tacos, including a Crunchy Taco, Nacho Cheese Doritos® Locos Tacos, Cool Ranch® Doritos® Locos Tacos and a Fiery Doritos® Locos Tacos for $5. Some other chains are also offering special deals. California Taco is doing a buy one taco get one free. Margaritas Mexican Grill is serving a Taco Gigante, a mammoth of a taco that weighs two pounds and is filled with chicken, beef, pork, bacon, cheese, lettuce, refried beans and much more. Accept the Taco Gigante challenge and you’ll get a free Taco Gigante. Of course, you may have to ask for it to go. Here is a little Taco history. The name Taco apparently came from the silver mines of Mexico in the 18th Century. The term referred to the little explosives workers used to extract the ore. Pieces of paper were wrapped around the gunpowder similar to how a Taco is stuffed with all those tasty fillings. Actually, one of the first types of Tacos described in the 19th Century is called tacos de minero—miner’s tacos. A pretty cool story! Anyway trivia aside, do you like Tacos? What kind are your favorite? Do you go to fast food places or restuarants for Tacos? Sources- Taco Bell Website and fortune.com and nationaltacoday.com Photo- California Tortilla/google images

@dgobucks226 We have our Jewish holidays, but, nothing like National cat or dog day or national taco day. We have difference remembrance days like for our soldiers that are gone from us and for all of our Jews that perished in the Holocaust which are very important days.

I could never live in the US with so many yummy National Days. I do like tacos, yummy! Very cool about the fact the name came about from pieces of paper wrapped around little explosives....and some chilli fillings come close to those explosives
