Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cherry Pie Day

National Cherry Pie happens on February 20th each year, which arrives less than a week after Valentine's Day, a celebration that puts the panache-filled focus on red foods, red-themed decorations, and other delightful details that boast a distinctly cherry hue.

Cherry pie is the fifth most popular pie in the US. Edged out of the top ranks by Apple, Pumpkin, Pecan, and Banana Cream pie.

Cherry Pie might have also caused some legal problems for those in Kansas. At one time it was illegal to serve ice cream on cherry pie in the state.

In the 19th century, cherry pie was served as a breakfast food, and was a welcome as a replacement for eggs, toast, or biscuits.

Cherry pie was banned in England in the 17th century, because of how tasty it was. They considered it to be a pagan form of pleasure and for almost two decades, pie-eating went underground and did well.

The wealthy English were known for their “surprise” cherry pies which had live creatures in them that would sometimes pop out and surprise the person eating it!
