National Popcorn Day is a yearly affair that’s observed on 19th January throughout the world. Despite it not being a national holiday (if only it is lah), that doesn’t mean you cannot celebrate it in your own way. Some people may prefer to celebrate the classic way by eating popcorn, but others may want to do it a little differently. If you belong to the latter group, these are some fun ways you can commemorate National Popcorn Day.

You might be wondering: what exactly is popcorn olympics? Well, it’s nothing too serious lah. It just means popcorn games that you can play alongside your family and friends. Some of the games we recommend are popcorn air hockey, popcorn basketball, and popcorn race.
For popcorn basketball, all you have to do is throw each popcorn into a small designated hoop to score a point. This hoop can be a rubber band or something crafted with paper, don’t need to be so zhun. On the other hand, popcorn air hockey and popcorn race are relatively similar. By using paper to blow the popcorn, these games can be easily played on the coffee or dining table.
