Let's Talk with Terry Ambrose
It’s National Office Chocolate Day!
That’s right. Chocolate has its own day (actually, it has at least three because there’s also World Chocolate Day on July 7 and International Chocolate Day on September 13. Whew! That’s a lot of holidays over one little confection. Then again, we’re talking chocolate here. Need I say more?
Good old chocolate has been around for a long time—about 2,000 years, actually. Kudos to anyone who knows who the Olmec were. They were the first Mesoamerican culture (think, Central Mexico down into Belize, Northern Costa Rica, and a whole lot more). They had a rich religion, were talented artists and architects, and invented some cool stuff—like chocolate. The Mayans and the Aztecs also got into the act and figured out how to make unsweetened beverages using the dark stuff.
Far be it from me to espouse chocolate as a health food, so I’ll let WebMD handle that! They say that dark chocolate has compounds that “help protect your cells from inflammation, improve your brain function, and boost your immune and cardiovascular health.” Sign me up! My new, go-to health food!
The point of National Office Chocolate Day is to share chocolate with your coworkers. But what if you work from home like me? Well, I have an office. I work (some would beg to differ with me). But I’m going with that and think I’ll help myself to some dark chocolate to celebrate the day!
Are you going to celebrate? Do you have coworkers to share with? What about a chocolate office party? Leave a comment to let me know your thoughts. I will select one commenter to win a copy of one of my books, and that includes The Case of the Amorous Assailant.
