Americans love hot dogs, whether meaty or with assorted veggies. The National Hot Dog Day was created to celebrate one of the American cuisines. The National Hot Dog Day is observed in the United States as an informal holiday. The dates change every year as the annual hot dog lunch event determines them.

What is the history of Hot Dogs Day?

German immigrants to America brought with them the first hot dogs back in the 18th century. In 1870, a German named Charles Feltman sold over 3600 hot dogs on a stand in Coney Island. The popularity of hot dogs soon spread very fast due to their affordability. Later, hot dogs were linked to the sport baseball, and hundreds of the delicacy would be sold anytime there was a baseball match. In 1991, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council declared National Hot Dog Day to be observed every year in July.

When is National Hot Dog Day?

National Hot Dog Day is observed every year on the third Wednesday in July. The date is determined by when the annual hot dog lunch on capitol hill is held since the two events should coincide. The dates are, therefore, subject to change every year.

Although hot dogs have their origin in Frankfurt, Germany, Americans embraced the delicacy making it one of its cuisines. The American hot dog is loaded with beef and a variety of toppings. National Hot Dog Day is even more worth celebrating, considering that anybody can cook a hot dog at home.
