March 24 is reserved as National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day. Why? Does it matter?

Myself, I can take'em or leave'em. They're not my favorite but I won't shun them either. I do believe that raisins are in many of our products that have no business in having raisins in the first place such as cinnamon rolls and oatmeal cookies. Some people love'em, I wouldn't miss them if they were gone tomorrow, but they're not the worst thing ever.

On March 24, and March 24 only, I'll pass up on the M&Ms and Skittles and grab some chocolate covered raisins to celebrate. You can, too, if you wish.
