Whether you’re a sucker for sweet, savory or sauce-filled pies, pie day ensures everyone has a good excuse to indulge.

The annual celebration started in Colorado in the mid 70’s, when engineer Charlie Papazian declared his own birthday to be National Pie Day. The American Pie Council later sponsored the day in 1986, but everyone can celebrate worldwide.

January 23rd is also International Sticky Toffee Pudding Day in honour of the classic British dessert.
