Happy National Apple Pie Day
- Apple pie was first brought to the English colonies by the British, Dutch, and Swedes during the 17th and 18th centuries.
- In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, apple pie became a symbol of American prosperity and national pride.
- "As American as apple pie" is a saying in the United States meaning "typically American"
- The dish was also commemorated in the phrase "for Mom and apple pie" - supposedly the stock answer of American soldiers in World War II, whenever journalists asked why they were going to war.
