Whether people like it in a ceramic or bread bowl, they come together with spoons ready every Feb. 25.

Thursday was National Clam Chowder Day, according to NationalDayCalendar.com.

The soup in its simplest form contains clams or fish, milk or cream and potatoes.

The Manhattan version has tomatoes.

In honor of the day, Max's Oyster Bar in West Hartford and Max Fish in Glastonbury announced they were offering a free cup of clam chowder with the purchase of any regular lunch or dinner entree.
