How Pie Day Has Gradually Grown

Jul 22, 2008
This year you could help make pie day that bit more special, by sending a free e-card out to friends and family alike, with a picture or story about a pie on it. The best bit about free e-cards is most certainly that they are totally free. Free e-cards have quickly grown in popularity, becoming more and more popular as the internet has grown.

One of the main reasons behind this is that free e-cards can be sent from nearly anywhere in the world to nearly anywhere in the world, as long as you are connected to the internet your e-card will send, and it is the same for receiving e-cards. Also e-cards are very environmentally friendly, as no paper is ever wasted, so this means no trees are being wasted, which in turn leads to more carbon dioxide being turned into oxygen.

Free e-cards come in so many different genres and categories it will actually amaze you when you see it. They cover so many different things, from sports, to books, to nearly any other hobby or activity or job that you can think of. There are even some to cover funerals.

Who doesn't like pie? Whether it's warm apple pie the sliver of cheese melting on top as is customary in New England or a slice of cool key lime pie with a dollop of whipped cream, no desert could compare.

Many people have over the years elevated pie baking to an art form, redefined homemade to mean always delicious, and have helped both to carry on the recipes of the generations past and to explore new possibilities of this culinary art.

There are also those who prefer store-bought pie, and the tasty varieties to be found there. National Pie Day, set aside annually on January 23rd by the American Pie Council, celebrates all kinds of pies in all their mouth-watering varieties, not just long-standing favorites like apple and blueberry.

Also, let's not overlook all the different kinds of tarts, pudding pies, spinach pies, meat-filled savory pies, and the infamous pizza pie!

As for any occasion that celebrates a specific food, the observance of National Pie Day involves eating a lot of pie! But don't limit yourself to just consuming it, any activity pertaining to pie is a good way to mark the day and commemorate America's favorite comfort food.

Bake some pies for your family, friends, and neighbors, or organize a community bake-off and donate the revenue to a local charity or food bank.

For a great time and a good many laughs have a pie-eating or pie-throwing contest to benefit a charitable organization. In other words, use pie as a way to reach our to other people, make friends and meet your neighbors, and to make a difference in your community.

I don't quite know how I would cope without free e-cards. Now I longer have to worry about being to late to send a card, because it will arrive almost instantly. And I never have to pay!
