Celebrated during the month of May. In terms of celebrations, National Hamburger Month seems to be another restaurant promotional tool, which was created by White Castle in 1993. This actually makes sense because they say May is the busiest grilling and barbecuing month of the year, so people have hamburgers on their mind.
What is the origin of the hamburger?
It's been said the ancient Egyptions ate ground meat several thousand years ago, however, the current hamburger as we know it came from either Germany or America a hundred years ago.
What is the purpose of National Hamburger Month?
Getting back to the topic at hand, National Hamburger Month seems to be another way for restaurants to offer special Hamburger deals and promotions every May. We prefer National "Hamburger Charlie" Day ourselves, since it celebrates the actual birth of the hamburger. On a side note, the world's largest hamburger parade is in Seymour, Wisconsin, every year in August.
When is National Hamburger Month?
