Sinkie Day

Sinkie Day is celebrated in the US right after Thanksgiving. Morning meets with a dirty kitchen: leftover food, dirty dishes … This is not encouraging. How about eating right above the sink to save time cleaning and cooking? Of course, at feasts this will not work, but alone with yourself completely!


The holiday was founded in 1991 by the lAPWDOTKS movement, whose members told people that saving time is easier than it seems. This tradition has swept the masses! Another important goal: to do charity, which is necessary for countries in which hunger reigns. Norm Hankoff came up with the idea for the holiday: one day he was sitting over the sink, using chips as a spoon, with which he scooped up a salad with tuna.

Being Shinki doesn’t mean being lazy. Some people need aesthetics: a set table, candles, identical plates. Others appreciate simplicity and are happy to have a bite of pizza with an open refrigerator, on the dashboard of a car, on a park bench. Perhaps these options are suitable for you – try it!

Interesting facts


  • Norman received a letter of approval from the White House – the first lady learned about the offer of an alternative lunch, dinner, snack;
  • in 2021 there was an anniversary of the holiday – it turned 30 years old;
  • the idea doesn’t revolve around one shell – it talks about snacking habits in general.

How to celebrate

When you want to eat, give up the formalities. At least for 1 day! Keep track of how much time you save. Tell your friends about the holiday and listen to their opinions. Let Sinkie Day become a kind of weekend, on which it is easy to relax from the usual kitchen servings!
