Observed annually on Nov. 3, National Sandwich Day is one of our favorite holidays. The sandwich is believed to be the namesake of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, following the claim that he invented the first ever sandwich. As one of America’s most popular lunch items, this day gives us a great reason to enjoy a sandwich.
Why We Love National Sandwich Day
A. It’s a great to-go meal
While some people love sitting down and taking their time to enjoy a great sandwich, some just simply have a fast-paced lifestyle. For those people always on the go, a beautifully crafted sandwich is always a great idea.
