Widely observed celebration of the popular, creamy dessert—by restaurants and bakeries, who usually offer discounts and new flavor introductions.
The original sponsor is unknown to date.

The earliest attested mention of a cheesecake is by the Greek physician Aegimus (5th century BCE), who wrote a book on the art of making cheesecakes.
