Apple pie. Sweet potato pie. Pecan pie.

Today is the day to celebrate your favorite type of pie, no matter what it may be.

It's National Pie Day, a holiday dreamed up by the American Pie Council.


The holiday encourages Americans to "pause amidst the hectic pace of everyday life and express their love, gratitude and appreciation for one another, for their blessings, and for the simple things in life."

And enjoy a slice of pie of course.
