English Breakfast Day

Sunday April 5th 2014 Story


E-Petition For An Official English Breakfast Day

The tradition of the full English breakfast is one that is regularly enjoyed in all four corners of the earth, by British expatriates, Commonwealth citizens and English breakfast fans of every nationality.

Whenever the British travel, they take the traditional full English breakfast with them and encourage others to eat it.

Back in the 19th century the British merchant navies exported the tradition of a full English breakfast to the four corners of the earth, on their ships plying the worlds oceans, the tradition of a fry up on Sunday morning was sacrosanct.

In the United Kingdom, the tradition of the full English breakfast is one that is in decline, we want to celebrate and support this centuries old tradition by nominating the first Sunday of April as International English Breakfast Day.

We feel that an International English Breakfast Day would achieve three goals worth pursuing, firstly it would help support our local farmers, butchers and cafe owners, secondly it would celebrate an icon of Englishness internationally and finally, it would publicly honour an iconic national dish, enjoyed by millions of British and Commonwealth citizens.

In order to honour the tradition of the full English breakfast and an icon of Englishness, the English Breakfast society has begun an e-petition to petition the UK government to debate the motion in the House of Commons and consider officially recognising the first Sunday of every April as International English Breakfast Day.

You can show your support for the tradition of the full English Breakfast by signing our e-petition, or perhaps writing to your local Member of Parliament and asking them to support the motion in front of Parliament.

You can get involved on the day by enjoying our beloved national dish and sharing the experience on social media using the English Breakfast Society hastags #fryup #fullenglish @fryupsociety.

You can also follow us on twitter, like our page on facebook and follow us on Linkedin if you were feeling friendly :)
