Where to get free cookies on National Cookie Day

There's an abundance of food holidays we seem to observe these days, and from coffee to pizza, our favorite part of these celebrations is getting discounted and free food at our favorite restaurants. We're doubly excited for National Cookie Day on December 4, 2019, because nothing makes us feel like a kid again or breaks up a tedious work week like a free cookie (via Today). 

National Cookie Day falls on the 4th of December every year, and was invented in 1987 by the owner of the Blue Chip Cookie Company (via Days of the Year). Even Cookie Monster got in on the fun, and the holiday continues today. These days, if you want to celebrate you can either bake yourself some cookies at home, or, even better, go get a free or discounted cookie from one of these national chains.
