About the Holiday

The tradition of Happy Goose Day says that if you eat a roasted goose on September 29th, that you will have good luck for the upcoming year. This holiday, in current form, is believed to trace its roots back to the 15th century in England, where roasted goose became the traditional meal of the Michaelmas celebration. This blog post has an excellent write-up on the known history and its current celebration in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.
