Today comes with just the pick-me-up you need at the start of the work week: free cookies.

Every year, December 4 marks the faux holiday known as National Cookie Day, which is not to be confused with National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day on May 15. Naturally, the holiday is devoted to eating cookies—and many restaurants and stores celebrate by offering special discounts or by simply giving away free cookies.

The National Cookie Day deals for 2017 include special offers from Cinnabon, Great American Cookies, Insomnia Cookies, and Whole Foods.
