It's a perfect time for you to layer up your day with loads and loads of goodies. Have a yummy treat with your friends, families and loved ones.
It's not just a cheesy excuse for a holiday or an opportunity for Subway to make more bread. National Sandwich Day is a celebration of convenience food, a true slice of life.
Nov. 3 is the anniversary of John Montagu's birthday. It's believed that this 18th-century English noble, better known as the fourth Earl of Sandwich, wanted to eat with one hand during a 24-hour gambling bender. So, he instructed his servants to serve him his lunch meat between two pieces of bread. To celebrate the occasion, Nov. 3 is officially "National Sandwich Day."
People everywhere enjoy sandwiches daily. Oh, how we love them. The NRA (no, not that one--we mean the National Restaurant Association) says that after fruit, the hamburger is the second most popular lunch choice by full-time employees; 15% typically choose a hamburger for lunch.
Have a happy sandwich day!
