Get your caffeine on and celebrate with a free cup of coffee.
If the first words out of your mouth every morning are, “I’ll have a large coffee”—or if you can’t even speak until after you’ve had your java fix—there's a national holiday created especially for you. America will put staunch tea drinkers to shame on National Coffee Day on Sept. 29, when coffee fiends can rejoice and celebrate their beloved coffee bean with free brew from national chains. Coffee was first brought to America in the mid-1600s in a shipment en route to “New Amsterdam,” now known as New York, according to the National Coffee Association.

A family-operated business, The Coffee Mill was opened at a time when places that solely sold coffee were rare.
Perusing the shelves of nostalgic candy many Baby Boomers remember from their childhood, Karen Hone picks up something that is appropriate as Christmas morning draws nearer.
