Cinnamon Roll Day is a holiday dedicated to the most delicious and aromatic treat! On October 4th, we can all forget about our diets and indulge in a sweet treat.
It is believed that cinnamon rolls first appeared in Europe in the same year that the popular sweet was brought to the continent. In Sweden, the bun became so popular after the Second World War that it has become part of their culture. In 1999, the holiday began to be celebrated in Sweden and Finland and soon spread to other countries. In 1985, the first Cinnabon store opened in Washington State, USA.
