Forgive me for sounding like an elder millennial, but there is a day for pretty much everything nowadays. Most of them are dumb (…sorry!) but of course, McDonald’s has saved the day (hahaha) with a new national day for one of the most iconic foods out there: the Egg McMuffin.
McDonald’s is declaring Monday March 2 National Egg McMuffin Day. How do we celebrate on such an exciting day, you might ask? Dressing up like a McMuffin? Singing carols praising the glory that is the McMuffin? Of course not! That would be silly. However, McDonald’s is doing something way better than any of those ideas by giving everyone a free Egg McMuffin.
If you download McDonald’s mobile app you can redeem this offer between 6-10:30 a.m. local time on Monday, March 2 ONLY. After that, well, you gotta pay for your own McMuffin, I guess!
If you’ve somehow never had one, an Egg McMuffin is made up of an English muffin, a slice of Canadian bacon, an egg, and a slice of American cheese to make a perfect and glorious fast food breakfast sandwich. Wow, I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but I wish it was Monday already so I could get my hands on one FOR FREE.
If McMuffins aren’t your style, this is just a reminder than McDonald’s is also serving Shamrock Shakes and Oreo Shamrock McFlurries right now, albeit not for free. Still! Lots to be thrilled about.
