Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 3, 2014 is

National Sandwich Day

Today is a celebration of one of America's favorite foods: the sandwich! It is no coincidence that November 3 is also the birthday of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich. This 18th century English noble wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve him his lunchmeat between two slices of bread. To commemorate the birth of the world's first sandwich-maker, November 3 is now National Sandwich Day!

What's the most popular sandwich in America? Why, the hamburger, of course! Chicken sandwiches are a close second. Buy your favorite sandwich at a local deli or make your own at home to celebrate National Sandwich Day!

  • November is National Pomegranate Month & Peanut Butter Lover's Month & Family Literacy Month
