National Taco Day is observed annually on October 4.  Tacos are loved and eaten by millions each day in either hard or soft shells with a variety of fillings.

The history of tacos predates the arrival of Europeans in Mexico. Anthropological evidence shows the native people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish.  At the time of the Spanish conquistadors, Bernal Diaz del Castillo documented the first taco feast enjoyed by Europeans.  This meal was arranged by Hernan Cortes for his captains in Coyoacan. It is unclear why the Spanish used the word taco to describe this native food.  One suggested origin is the word  ataco , meaning stuff or to stuff.

In 1964, Roberto L. Gomez established The National Taco Council. The council sent a 55-pound taco to President Johnson in 1967.

Many restaurants offer specials for National Taco Day.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Dog Treats at Christmas

Besides an “atta boy” and pat on the head from you, the next greatest reward your dog likes is a yummy treat. What’s more, giving your dog a treat makes you feel good, too. The very act of rewarding your best friend with his favorite treat not only reinforces training, but helps solidify the bond you share with your canine companion.

Fortunately, organic Christmas treats are a way you can spoil your dog without giving him an unhealthy snack. If you do not have access to a doggy bakery, you can find several healthy choices online, the healthiest being an organic or all natural treat.

For instance, Pampered Paw Gifts   offers dog lovers organic and all natural products like salt free Christmas doggy cakes made with a rice cake and yogurt frosting, decorated in holiday colors, and trimmed in doggy bones.

The Christmas doggy treats look like pastries that come from a high-end human bakery and are exquisitely decorated in holiday colors in various dog-themed shapes. They not only look good enough for a person to eat for a Christmas treat, but are made with the finest human-grade ingredients. So, if your dog is willing to share with you, there is no harm in taking a nibble.

Other delectable dog treats you can expect to find online are cookies, bon bons, paw prints, paw cups, bones, reindeer, presents, mittens, santa paws, snowflakes, and wag sticks made from a peanut butter recipe and iced with yogurt. All items are free of byproducts, artificial color and flavors, and preservatives.

Listed below are other safe Christmas dog treats:

  • free-range chicken treats for smaller dogs
  • bon bons with yogurt coated snickerdoodle center
  • peanut butter macaroons filled with yogurt coating
  • cake bites made from pumpkin cake ball topped with organic coconut
  • snowmen cakes with peppermint carob and drizzled with yogurt icing
  • cookies that look like pies with a dollop of whip cream in the center
  • mini chocolate (carob) Christmas donuts flavored with peppermint oil
  • Christmas canoli filled with vanilla yogurt
  • decorated peanut butter carrot cake PupCakes
  • carob cakes filled with peppermint flavor and covered with coconut
  • chicken parmesan twists and canolis
  • cheddar cheese donuts

Let’s face it. Christmas morning is messy. Wrapping paper strews the scene, mugs of hot chocolate are stashed about. Honestly, by 10 a.m. I usually look around my living room and wonder how the tornado hit so fast, and how my lovely decorations could suddenly look so … junky.

That’s why this year I’m taking a pared-down approach, and so can you. Here are a few of my favorite designer tips and tricks for a fuss-free holiday.
1. Just add foliage. One of the most beautiful things I ever saw during the holidays was at a restaurant I used to frequent in Venice Beach. Its walls were all white, and up near the molding, fresh green garlands, peppered with tiny white lights, were swagged across the room. There were no ornaments, no ribbons, but there was something really magical about it (and it worked so beautifully that they actually kept it like that all year round). This staircase takes a similar approach. Simple, approachable, lovely and festive.
2. Add faux fur. Call me crazy, but if Christmas morning meant lounging on a deck wrapped up in something furry, I’d pretty much be in heaven. You can keep the presents, stockings and even the twinkly lights (though I am rather partial to them). Faux fur instantly winterizes any decor. Isn’t that what decorating for the holidays is all about? READ MORE ON HOUZZ
