National Hot Dog Day
When : July 23rd
National Hot Dog Day celebrates one of America's favorite summer sandwiches. It is only fitting that this dog gets its day.
Its summertime. Hot dogs are center stage on the grill, and at picnics all across America. They are at the ballpark. They are sold from carts on street corners in every city. It's not hard to find them. We consume hundreds of millions of hot dogs on the Fourth of July alone.
Enjoy National Hot Dog Day to the fullest. Have a couple of hot dogs for lunch or dinner. And, don't forget to cook a few on a stick at the evening campfire.
What's in a hot dog? Don't' ask, and we won't tell. Sometimes, its best if you don't know.
Happy National Hot Dog Day!
The companion for National Hot Dog Day is National Mustard Day (First Saturday in August)
How many Hot Dogs do we eat?
We consume so many hot dogs, in so many venues, that the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council hesitates to forecast consumption. But, it does report that each year we buy over 837 million packages of hot dogs at retail outlets, and over 24 million hot dogs at baseball stadiums alone.
