There are some fairly silly "days" celebrated in the world (ie. this Sunday is Answer Your Cat's Questions Day?!?), but I can completely support a National Popcorn Day! It's January- any excuse for celebration, fun, and/or food is good enough for me. Here are some ideas on how you can celebrate this day:
1. What's the first place you think of when you think of popcorn? Why, the movie theatre of course!
Pick a show at Landmark Cinemas and head out tonight with family or friends. There is something for everyone in the current line-up.
2. Stay at home and make popcorn while watching a movie or playing a game. Dutch Blitz anyone?
Got Netflix? If you need some suggestions for Netflix movies, try The Family, Now You See Me, Big Hero 6, 5 to 7, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Heat, or John Wick.
Want to start a new TV show? Try Touch, Suits, White Collar, or Merlin.
Not a Netflix person? No problem! Just take a quick jaunt down to the local library, they always have plenty of movie and TV series choices just sitting there waiting to be borrowed.
