Petition For National Concha Day

If These Latinxs Get Their Way, Conchas Might Be Getting Their Own Day

A post shared by Concha Day (@nationalconchaday) on

We all love indulging in a concha every once in a while, but now the Mexican sweet could get its own national day. That's what Jessica Resendiz, Karla Jimenez, and Alicia Becerra are trying to make happen. The three ladies started a petition to change Dec. 8 to "National Concha Day" from Dia de la Concepcion because "in the Mexican culture, the name Concepcion is often shortened to the nickname 'Concha'. As such, this date would be the most appropriate day to celebrate," the petition states.

"If National Concha Day was a reality, it would mean another stepping stone, another reminder of the power and reach of our community. And of course it would be so much fun! We can foresee the awesome events and attention to local business and panaderías," Karla wrote, as the reason why she signed and helped start the petition.

Right now, there are 1,975 supporters and only 525 more needed to reach the 2,500 goal in order to present it to Governor Jerry Brown of California. "The creation of a "National Concha Day" would be a fun and exciting way to honor the Mexican pastry and its culture. Such a day would not only bring smiles to people's faces, but also create cultural awareness of our customs and traditions," the petition reads. Our fingers are crossed for this day to become a reality.
