Mandy Moore Honors National Candy Day Accordingly

Contrary to what you might think, the official candy day of the year is not Halloween, Christmas, Easter, or Valentine’s Day. National Candy Day is on Nov. 4. And I only know this because YouTube and a certain late ‘90s/early ‘00s pop singer-turned-actress tweeted about it. On Friday, YouTube's Twitter account shared a link to Mandy Moore’s “Candy” music video for National Candy Day. And Moore, treasure that she is, replied accordingly: The This Is Us star tweeted back, “Love always, Mandy.”

May fans never forget National Candy Day 2016, for it was the day Moore really tweet-sang a lyric from her hit debut single. Wow. What a trip down memory lane, huh? I might go so far as to say that tweet is as awesome as a diner parking lot full of 1999 VW Beetles.

... OK, that was a fib. Sorry. Obviously, there isn't anything as awesome as a diner parking lot full of 1999 VW Beetles. Let me try that again: Moore tweeting about "Candy" on National Candy Day is as awesome as a teal Sony Psyc Walkman.

I know it's only been a few days since we inhaled dozens of fun-size Twix and Fun Dip packs on All Hallow's Eve, but a holiday is a holiday. So go to your local green grocer, make a beeline for the Halloween clearance aisle, and pick out a pillowcase-sized bag of your favorite confection.

Oh, and don't forget to listen to "Candy" on a loop while you mainline sweets.

Celebrate National Candy Day the right way.
