The White House’s 2nd annual Big Block of Cheese Day is back this year. For those, like me, who are unfamiliar with this tradition, it pays tribute to the day on February 22, 1837 where President Jackson had a 1400-pound block of cheese wheeled into the White House as guests were invited to open it with the President and discuss the current issues of the day.

This year’s Big Block of Cheese Day will happen on January 21st, following the President’s State of the Union address on January 20th.
