Shortbread creates lifetime memories with many individuals and families. The nostalgia, holiday comforts, daily respite, and warm reminders of fellowship that Walkers Shortbread fosters deserves to be celebrated – and fans can celebrate as a nation on National Shortbread Day held annually on January 6th.
The best (and most obvious) way to celebrate National Shortbread Day is by opening a package of Walkers Shortbread to enjoy with your favorite steeped tea or beloved brewed coffee. National Shortbread Day conveniently falls right after the holiday rush in the frenzy of the New Year when everyone focuses on a fresh blank slate ahead. This is a prime time to stop and relax with shortbread and reflect on New Year’s goals, travel plans, family and life.
Aside from personally indulging in shortbread, here are a few more ways you can celebrate National Shortbread Day:
- Share shortbread. Make time with family and friends to honor National Shortbread Day together. Document your #nationalshortbreadday celebrations with photos and tag us on Facebook, Twitter @shortbread and Instagram @walkersshortbread.
- Upgrade. Last year Walkers Shortbread released a new Luxury Chocolate Shortbread Assortment luxury line. National Shortbread Day is the perfect occasion to treat oneself, and the new Chocolate Shortbread luxury line is the perfect fit!
- Make something. Take shortbread to another level with our library of Walkers Shortbread Recipes. Whether you make a shortbread crust for a cheesecake, or crumble cookies as part of a caramel apple shortbread parfait, incorporate shortbread into your cooking and baking for National Shortbread Day. Optional step: revert to #1 above and share your creations with friends, family – and our team via social media!
Shortbread was previously reserved for holidays and special events, so let’s also take time on National Shortbread Day to be grateful modern times let us make every day special with Walkers Shortbread.
