There is a national day each and every day of the year. Here are the national days for this week.

Monday: National French Toast Day

This breakfast food is very popular and easy to make. The base consists of milk and egg combined. The bread is dunked into the mixture until golden. French toast can be topped with sugar, fruit and whipped cream.

Tuesday: National Day of Giving

This day is a global day that is dedicated to giving back. In 2012, 92nd Street Y in New York City created this day to bring focus to the charitable season. National Day of Giving harnesses the power of social media to give back around the world throughout the year.

Wednesday: National Mousse Day

In French, the word mousse means foam. A mousse is normally made with whipped egg whites or cream. There is no limit to the flavors that can incorporate into a mousse.
