Three Latinxs created a petition for "National Concha Day" as a way to honor Mexican culture and, of course, indulge in the delicious pastry.
Jessica Resendiz, Karina Jimenez, and Alicia Becerra are the brains behind the operation to turn our dreams into a reality.
"Over the centuries, conchas have become an important part of Mexican culture and traditions. Generations have eaten them during family meals, celebrations and holidays, such as Dia de los Muertos and Christmas. As such, conchas have become synonymous with family, friendship and good times," their petition description reads.
They didn't just pick any random day for this celebration, either.
They wrote, "December 8th, also known as Dia de la Concepcion, would be the perfect day to celebrate "National Concha Day". In Mexican culture, the name Concepcion is often shortened to the nickname "Concha". As such, this date would be the most appropriate day to celebrate!"
You read that? December 8. Mark your calendars.
But before we start planning what local panaderías we have to raid in preparation for this glorious event, the signature goal has to be met.
It doesn't look like that's going to be a problem, though.
Although the final total number of signatures needed to present it to the governor of California hasn't been confirmed, we have a feeling concha lovers are going to make it happen.
People are backing the holiday for the best reasons.
"Such a day would not only bring smiles to people's faces, but also create cultural awareness of our customs and traditions."

We'll be eating our conchas and drinking our cafecito while we wait for the good news about our new soon-to-be favorite holiday.
