National Bagel and Lox Day 2017

It’s a special day and the celebrating has begun! Let me share some news from around the country!
Fun Holiday – Bagel and Lox Day – Popularized first by Jewish immigrants in New York City, bagels and lox is a classic combination and is a dish usually eaten during breakfast or for brunch.

From National Bagel Day – Bagel Trivia- Bagels have made their way to outer space thanks to Canadian-born astronaut Gregory Chamitoff. He’s the first space monkey to have taken a batch of 18 sesame seed bagels into space on his 2008 Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station.

From My Jewish Learning – 7 Incredible Ways to Eat Bagels and Lox It’s National Bagels & Lox Day, and to celebrate this chewy, briny match made in heaven, we’d like to spotlight the many ways in which these two complementary foods can be enjoyed.
At Foodimentary –February 9th is National Bagel and Lox Day! The word Bagel is often thought to have derived from the ‘buckle‘ shape it has, but actually it is from a Yiddish word ‘beygl‘ meaning ring or hole.

And Zabar’s celebrated in 2015 on their blog with this beautiful image. I love this place, and never skip it When I visit New York!zabars


The Bagel Bible


The Bagel Bible for Bagel Lovers, The Complete Guide to Great Noshing is a must read for bagel lovers. Check it out at your local library or find it on line. I believe it may be out of print but readily available from book sellers on line.
