National Hot Dog Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always the third Wednesday in July
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog! Today is National Hot Dog Day, On this date, we celebrate 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. It's a sausage, and that's all we will say. Sometimes, its best if you don't know.
Happy National Hot Dog Day!

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.
The Origin of National Hot Dog Day:
The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council created this day and holds an annual hot dog lunch in Washington, DC. They established this special holiday on the third Wednesday of the month.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
But, we firmly believe that there should be a national day for America's Hot Dog!
