Happy World Egg Day! World Egg Day is celebrated annually on the second Friday in October. Today is when the world celebrates and raises awareness about the benefits of eggs. World Egg Day was first established in 1996 at the International Egg Commission’s conference in Vienna. Eggs have played a huge role in feeding families around the world and thus they were given their own day of celebration. They are perfectly packaged by the chickens and affordable for many around the globe. They have fantastic health benefits and are full of protein and vitamins. They are a great source of choline for developing brains and memory and have been proven to help prevent deteriorating eyesight due to macular degeneration.
Here are some ways that you and your family can celebrate World Egg Day!

Read stories about eggs.
