Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Burger Day

In the UK, National Burger Day has taken place on the Thursday before the UK August bank holiday since 2016. It was first observed in 2013 and was celebrated on August 27th up to 2015.

It was launched by Mr Hyde, a daily email service for men that covered style, culture, film, and places to eat meat.

The earliest version of a foodstuff we would recognize as a burger can be found during the 1st century A.D. in Rome. This was a ground minced meat dish prepared with pine nuts, peppers and wine. It then took more than 1,200 years until the Mongols started tenderizing meat so that it can be eaten on the go; useful in their nomadic lifestyle.. 

The modern version of the burger that we eat today was only created around the late 19th century. In 1885 at the Erie County Fair in Hamburg, New York the Menches brothers used beef in their sandwiches, which they called 'Hamburgers'.
