Always on November 14th
About the Holiday
National Pickle Day celebrates cucumbers that have been preserved in brine or vinegar. The name pickle comes from the Dutch word pekel which means brine. The most common types of pickles are dill, bread and butter, and Gherkins. Pickles can be eaten on a burger, Chicago dog, as a relish, fried, on a sandwich or on a stick. Per PickleGuys.com "The earliest known examples are cucumbers that are known to have been pickled some time around 2030 BC in Mesopotamia, when inhabitants from northern India brought cucumber seeds to the Tigris valley...Cleopatra attributed some of her beauty to pickles."
