National-Sandwich-Day

National Sandwich Day takes place every Nov. 3, which was the birthday of John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, who reportedly invented the sandwich in 1762 during a gambling session. He asked for meat between bread slices so he could eat while playing cards.

In 2024, National Sandwich Day takes place on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2024.
