National Sandwich Day History
National Sandwich Day seeks to show appreciation for the combination of meat and cheese placed between two slices of bread. This day shows appreciation for all the different combinations of sandwiches that exist around the world.
The first written record of the term sandwich was in 1762 when English author Edward Gibbons spotted two men eating cold meat between bread in a small café called the Cocoa Tree.
The origins of the sandwich itself are unknown, but the concept can be dated as far back as the 1st century when rabbi Hillel the Elder filled two pieces of matzoh with nuts, apples, and spices. National Sandwich Day is observed annually on November 3rd.
