Free Stuff for the Frantic on Tax Day 2011

Tax Day. Did you get anxious just reading those words? What about free stuff? Hopefully, that phrase had the opposite effect. Someone was really thinking about our sanity when they started the free things on Tax Day trend and we would like to send out a genuine and sincere 'thank you' to whomever you may be.

To confuse you even more this year, the official Tax Day is actually April 18. Since Washington, DC will be celebrating Emancipation Day (the day Lincoln signed the Emancipation Act) on Friday April 15, Tax Day was pushed to the next business day, which is Monday April 18.

This is actually a great change for freebie-lovers across the nation, as some places are still celebrating tax day on the 15th, and others on the 18th. These free goods will be spread out over the span of 2 days, or in some cases through the entire weekend! So, if you feel yourself stressing out as Tax Day approaches, we encourage you to find solace in this list, much like Brad Tuttle's list, of Tax Day freebies:

Cinnabon: Get 2 free Cinnabon Bites on April 18 from 6-8 PM at your local location.
