National Cheeseburger Day
When : Always September 18th
National Cheeseburger Day is today. Top off America's favorite sandwich, with a piece of cheese.
The food industry makes it a point to celebrate a wide variety of foods. We believe the Cheeseburger certainly earns a special day.
Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day by firing up the grill, and cooking cheeseburgers. You can do so for lunch or dinner.... or both! Any kind of cheese will do. Try a different cheese, if your adventuresome. For the carb conscious, eat your burgers without the buns.
Watch for....... luncheon and dinner specials today at your local restaurants. Tops on the specials board certainly should be cheeseburgers!
Origin of National Cheeseburger Day:
We found no factual information about this special day. There was some reference to the American Dairy Association sponsoring this day. We have yet to find substantial evidence to confirm this.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
