Five Things You Didn’t Know About National Taco Day

According to the internet– and when is it ever wrong?– today, October 4, is “National Taco Day.” To celebrate, we’ve compiled five things you didn’t know about this holiday.

1. Apparently, there’s something called “National Taco Day.”

2. Seriously, we’re not making this up at all.

3. President Obama celebrated National Taco Day by ignoring it, much like every other important Hispanic issue he comes across. After much pressure from the ever-growing Latino voter base, he finally succumbed, ate one, and deported the guy who made it to prove to conservatives he’s tough on immigration.

4.Despite the fact that it’s a national holiday, some states have refused to recognized its legitimacy. In Texas, for example, any mention of it was removed from Texas history books alongside Cesar Chavez. Meanwhile, In Arizona– particularly Maricopa County– possession of a taco over four ounces carries a mandatory sentence of 20 to life.

5. It’s a silly, dumb, and arbitrary holiday. We’ve spent the last 30 minutes trying to figure out its origins (we’re nerds like that), but failed miserably. At the end of the day, you don’t need an excuse to eat tacos.  that, according to O.C. Weekly’s Gustavo Arrellano, was created by Austin Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy’s (we’ve been there, and their food is bland and terrible).

Here’s the thing. You don’t need an excuse to eat tacos. They’re delicious and should be consumed often… just not in Arizona for the above-stated reason.
