Holiday food

shelleycat and i were discussing what holidays there are that have snacks/food attached to them. Here's what i came up with:

January: New Years Day (General partying, eating, drinking, being merry, etc, but no special food.)
February: Valentines Day (candy hearts and chocolate)
March: St. Patrick's Day (Beer, kinda borderline)
April: Easter (Easter candy)
May: Cindo de Mayo (Mexican food, kinda borderline)
June: Nothing
July: 4th of July (BBQ and picnics, but no special food, kinda borderline)
August: Nothing
September: Nothing
October: Halloween (Halloween candy)
November: Thanksgiving (Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie)
December: Christmas (cookies, candy canes, stocking candy, all kinds of stuff.)

So there are three borderline months (March, May and July) and three entirely barren months (June, August and September.)

March and July could certainly afford to be spiffed up a little (Clover and Fireworks Peeps! ;)

June already has a ready made holiday, so we just need Summer Solstice Snacks. Obviously this would include little sun shaped Peeps. Are there any other foods that would be especially appropriate for it?

August and September are just screwed though. Labor Day cookies? shelleycat suggested Burning Man treats, but i don't think it has enough cultural currency to become a national holiday, especially given how regional it is. (I wonder which is more popular? Burning Man or Talk Like a Pirate Day? =)
