National Ants on a Log Day

National Ants on a Log Day is dedicated to the tasty, healthy, and fun snack food. Ants on a log consist of a spread, such as peanut butter, placed on celery sticks, with raisins put on top. Peanut butter is the most common spread, but ricotta and cream cheese or other spreads may be used. A variation of the snack, gnats on a log, uses currants instead of raisins, and ants on vacation is a variation without raisins. The snack has been around since the 1950's, and this is a good time of the year for the day to be celebrated, as many kids have just returned to school and need some good brain food to help them with their studies.

How to Observe National Ants on a Log Day

The day should be celebrated by eating ants on a log! If you have children make some for them, but make sure you have enough ingredients to make yourself some as well.
