|What is Sandwich Day?|
Sandwich Day, like Hamburger Day and Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, is a celebration of a convenient lunchtime food. Legend has it that the 4th Earl of Sandwich, a man named John Montagu, invented the sandwich during a gambling binge in 1762. He apparently didn't want to leave the table and found that layering meat between two slices of bread gave him a way to eat at the card table without the need for utensils. Whatever the origins, the sandwich certainly caught on.
Today, the ham sandwich, the BLT, and the PB&J are some of the most popular sandwiches in the U.S. Chicken breast, turkey, roast beef, and tuna are among the top meats, while cheese is definitely the favorite topping. Americans eat hundreds of millions of sandwiches each day-almost one per person in the nation. Sandwich Day is a great occasion to take your lunch to work. You could even arrange a sandwich swap where everyone brings their favorite to share.
