    Pop some corn and celebrate National Popcorn Day on Jan. 19.

    Yes, that's right, Jan. 19 is National Popcorn Day. So grab a movie and start poppin'.

    While the origins of the national "holiday" are unknown, you can still act like it's something important and worth celebrating.

    Whether you like it buttered, salted, with caramel or cheese, get to the store, get a bag -- or two or three -- of your favorite flavors and get the popcorn party started.

    And in honor of National Popcorn Day, we did a little research (and by research we mean googled) some fun tips to put a little twist on traditional popcorn eating.

    • Top soup or salad with popcorn
    • Season plain popcorn with some garlic powder or seasoning salt
    • Popping corn the old fashioned way? Season the popping oil with spices to create a lightly flavored treat
    • Combine popcorn with dried fruit and nuts to create your own snack mix

    Happy Popping!
