National Whatever Day: April 17th

Two National Whatever Days occupy April 17th: National Cheeseball Day and World Federation of Hemophilia Day.

National Cheese Ball Day
Cheese balls are one of the most popular snack food at parties. They are fun, easy to eat on with crackers or chips, and unique to the party food genre. The first cheese ball recipe to surface in a cookbook was discovered in 1944 in Virginia Safford's cookbook titled, "Food of my Friends." Safford was a very popular columnist for the Minneapolis Star journal who, "aspired to eat her way around the world." For more info on the history of the cheese ball, click here.

World Federation of Hemophilia Day
This year, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is celebrating their 50th anniversary. According to WFH, "In 2014, World Hemophilia Day will focus on encouraging the global bleeding disorders community to Speak out. Create change. This year we are making a particular effort to reach out to young members of the community so as to promote their participation and to develop strong leadership. We want our young members to feel inspired to assume key roles in building and supporting the bleeding disorders community."
