Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 2, 2016 is

Cookie Monster Day

Today is Cookie Monster's Birthday! Have fun as you celebrate the birthday of everyone’s favorite blue monster with a voracious appetite. Jim Henson created the original version of Cookie Monster for a General Foods commercial in 1966, and the beloved character appeared in the very first episode of Sesame Street in 1969. Cookie Monster's googly eyes are never too big for his stomach, and he’s always ready to enjoy more cookies! 

Cookies are one of the most popular treats during the holiday season, which is fast approaching. Why not embrace your inner Cookie Monster and host a holiday cookie exchange this year? Send a Cookie Monster online invitation to get into the spirit.

Spread the word that "C is for Cookie!" and celebrate Cookie Monster Day with a plate of your favorite cookies, bake cookies with friends, or stop by your favorite bakery!
