Free and Discounted Food on National Holidays

Free food? Yes, please!

Last year I kept seeing pictures of my friends on Facebook enjoying free food on national holidays. Most of the time I'd see it at the end of the day, sadly, to realize I missed out. I decided I needed to compile a list of these holidays and plan ahead, and with the help of friends I did it! 
The word is definitely getting out, but I still think the lines are worth the wait! Be sure to mark your calendars so you can enjoy your goodies!
