The biggest day in February is finally here. The day we look forward to all year long. Hip hip hooray! February 20 is Cherry Pie Day!

There isn’t a lot of background for this very sweet day, but it seems appropriate in a month celebrating our revered presidents, one of whom famously ‘fessed up to causing the demise of a cherry tree. Besides, the cherry pie deserves it’s own day. This delectable dessert always comes in second to its apple counterpart and it’s time it got to be first, if only for a day.

To satisfy your pie craving on this day, and perhaps make you never want to see another pie again, we have dug up some unbelievable pie eating contest videos. Make sure you don’t watch these right after, or before, lunch.
