Whether you eat a burger today or not, we should thank this historic day for learning about its meaning and significance.
The hamburger is America's most iconic fast food and on May 28th, Americans celebrate National Hamburger Day. The significance of this day lies in the invention of the burger which took place a century ago. With over 50 billion burgers consumed annually with only about 5% eaten at home, it seems that there are few who don't know about them! If you're one among these people then today is your lucky day because we will be exploring what makes up this national holiday so let's take a look into its meaning and significance...
The most popular food in the United States, hamburgers has been eaten for centuries. Some believe that Hamburgs originated from Germany with their name stemming from a 1758’s recipe called “Hamburgh Sausage." Others say it is an all-American dish as they are so famous here.
Controversy surrounds the origin of hamburgers, but few argue that it didn't originate in America where they are so popular. One theory is 1758's recipe for a dish called "Hamburg Sausage" gave Hamburg its association with hamburgers as this was around when burgers were first mentioned in writing and recipes began to rise up from being just steaks on bread.
The debate over the origin of one of America's favorite sandwiches, the hamburger, continues to this day. But there is no doubt that it has become a worldwide phenomenon and even has its own national day dedicated just to burgers!
National Hamburger Day celebration includes eating hamburgers, of course. Restaurants and delis are usually seen giving out hefty discounts on their food items and holding Hamburg festivals that fuel eating competitions. With the advent of digital marketing, companies generate lots of fun online competitions with beefy prizes to engage people in creative ways like never before!
