National Croissant Day is observed each year on January 30th.

Legend surrounds this pastry, as is often the case with a popular, worldly treat. What is known, is that crescent-shaped breads have been found around the world for ages. One of these was the Kipferl which originated in Austria as far back as the 13th century.

Credit for the croissant we know today is given to an Austrian military officer, August Zang. In 1939 he opened a Viennese bakery in Paris introducing France to Viennese baking techniques.

So celebrate National Croissant Day by stopping by one of these three bakeries in Kits for a fresh, warm croissant on January 30th.
