About National Burrito Day
National Burrito Day is celebrated on the first Thursday in April, though it's unclear when it was first celebrated, or why this day was chosen, and by whom, and also it's not actually an official national holiday recognized by any governmental body foreign or domestic.
Burritos began to appear on American restaurant menus in the 1930s. Before that, the oldest known mention of "burrito" was in 1895, and according to the Diccionario de Mexicanismos, it translates from English to Spanish as "little donkey."
When it comes to what makes a burrito, traditional burritos have very few ingredients. So, if you're used to the overstuffed, ingredient-heavy bites, then you're a fan of Mission Burritos, which were first made in San Francisco in the 1960s.
