During the cold winter months, soup warms our body and spirit. Now let’s warm our hearts with some soup-related giggles.

The first bowl of soup was prepared around 20,000 BC when prehistoric folk began cooking broths in clay pots. Do you know the four main categories of soup? They are: thin, thick, cold, and national. Soup is popular all over the world with different countries having their own traditional varieties. There is noodle soup from China, Gazpacho from Spain, Borscht in Russia, and many more.
