7/7/17 – World Chocolate Day

July 7, 2017 marks some 465 years since chocolate was introduced to Europe. World Chocolate Day, sometimes referred to as International Chocolate Day, is an observance that occurs globally every year on July 7.

Celebration of the day includes the consumption of chocolate, which is hardly surprising? Want to celebrate the day more elaborately? Lonely Planet has some ideas for you.

Please let us know how you plan to celebrate! (And please post photos of what actually happens because, you know, what happens on TheChocolateLife does not remain on TheChocolateLife!) Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Chocolate_Day
