Hummus Day

Annually on May 13th, enthusiasts of hummus come together to observe International Hummus Day. This day not only serves as a joyous celebration for hummus lovers but also aims to raise awareness about this delectable food that has become a cross-cultural phenomenon.

Derived from the Arabic word for chickpea, hummus has roots in Arabic culture. While some historians propose its origin in Egypt, various groups, including the Lebanese, Turks, Jews, and Syrians, have asserted their contribution to the invention of hummus.
