National Cheese Lover's Day, celebrated on January 20th each year, is a day dedicated to honoring the deliciousness that is cheese. It's a chance to pay homage to the wide variety of cheeses from around the world and the joy they bring to our taste buds. From sharp cheddars to creamy bries, there's a cheese out there for everyone (unless you're lactose intolerant, in which case, we apologize for the cheesy temptation).
Say Cheese! How to Celebrate:
