We're suckers for free things and especially free food. Oddly enough, when "Talk Like a Pirate Day" actually came around, neither Tony or I was feeling up to the task of dressing kids up like pirates and heading to Krispie Kreme for their free dozen donuts. But, as all parents know, you can't say anything about anything to your kids (even days beforehand) if you're not sure sure sure that you want to do it. These kids wouldn't let us skip pirate day.
It ended up being a fun family activity and we enjoyed eating donuts for a few days. What other free food traditions does your family have?
