May Every Day | National Have a Coke Day

May Every Day is a series of daily blog posts for May 2021 sharing days and weeks that we celebrate or observe. Some of these days are well-known holidays while others are more obscure observances, some are celebrated internationally while others are more nationally focused, some are significant while others are just plain FUN!

This is my kind of day - National Have a Coke Day! I can't remember when I started drinking Coca-Cola, but it has been a constant in my life as long as I can remember. Even in the 1980s when I was a pre-teen, I knew that the company was making a mistake with that New Coke formula! I realize it's not the healthiest of habits, but I do enjoy an ice-cold Coca-Cola most days. 

There are, of course, quite a few options for enjoying a coke - iconic glass bottles, fountain drinks, plastic bottles, over ice, with ice cream to make a coke float, and (in other countries I discovered) with a lemon. However, my favorite way to enjoy this beverage is straight from an ice-cold red can!

If you haven't seen it in a while, here's the classic Coca-Cola commercial filmed on a hilltop in Italy in the 1970s, along with a 1990 reunion.

I do hope you'll find time to enjoy an ice-cold Coca-Cola today! 

[BTW - It's also Coconut Cream Pie Day. I checked the pantry and it looks like we have all the right ingredients, so Robbie assures me we'll be having a slice of pie to go with our coke this evening.]


  1. Nice layout tributes to your favourite beverage (col). I am not nor have I ever been a cola drinker, Mr Man took to Zero Coke a few years ago & the most interesting thing I found about Coca-Cola was that they produce a kosher cola during Passover. Hope you got your pie.

  2. The pie sounds great! A few years ago, I stopped drinking soda with one or two exceptions every year. Sometimes on a hot day, only a cola will do, but in general I stick to water and iced tea.

  3. I'm a Coke drinker too! But I could definitely get on board with a Coconut Cream Pie day!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
