When it comes to concocted "days," Friday will mark two that are circular, not secular, though one is certainly hole-y.
We're talking about a day to celebrate two of the nation's most popular foods — it's National Pizza Day and National Bagel Day.
And like other made-up food holidays, it's a day for freebies, specials and a chance to save some dough — on dough.
Offers can vary by location so call ahead to be on the safe side.
