Today we celebrate:

Flitch Day – A flitch is the meat cut from the side of an animal or fish. These days you usually only hear it when a side of salted or cured pork is being referred to as a flitch of bacon. There is a VERY old tradition (rarely heard of these days except in certain parts of England), that a married couple that can swear that they do not regret getting married for a year and a day after the wedding are given a flitch of bacon.

National Raspberry Cake Day – The perfect dessert to go with your bacon, don't you think?

To celebrate today, find out how much bacon is in a flitch and find a happily married (or at least not regretfully married) couple to give it to. Then treat yourself to some raspberry cake.
