National Junk Food Day is July 21st

National Junk Food Day is July 21st and why we celebrate this day in the USA when obesity in the United States is unfortunately a growing and alarming trend I do not know. But you can get your junk- on by either wearing clothing or eyewear to celebrate this day. Junk food was not evident in the United States until the 1960’s when fast food showed up and chips. Historically speaking we did find a 1960’s ad which featured a Baby Ruth and Butterfinger dress with a model wearing oversized round sunglasses with a pink tint. Right in style today.
