The National Sandwich Day is observed on 3rd November each year. 'Sandwich' is believed to be the last name of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. It followed the claim that he was the inventor of this delicacy. A sandwich is an American meal often carried and packed as a take away bite at lunchtime or in between meals. It is a preferred snack because it is easy to make and does not stain or spill over when carefully wrapped.
History of the National Sandwich Day
As John Montagu carries with him the credit for the modern Sandwich, the inventor of the original Sandwich was undocumented, and thus his location, country or name cannot be established.
Another theory states that meat and bread sustained Lord Sandwich as he committed himself to play the card games. Lord was a strict gambler during his time, and his life experiences are documented in a book titled Tour to London, by Pierre Grosley. From the book, Sandwich’s friends called the meal by his name, and thus the name stuck all through the centuries.
Before this theory, the meal was referred to as bread and cheese or bread and meat. There are different options of sandwiches that you can make. The BTL, club sandwich, Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich, sloppy Joe’s and submarine sandwich amongst others.
The day is not recognized by any government but makes for a fun way to celebrate a meal that the entire community loves and has embraced for decades. It also serves as a simple way to get people together.
