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

The term hamburger originally derives from Hamburg, Germany's second-largest city. 

There are lots of different claims as to the origin of its popularity in the US. One of the earliest comes from Charlie Nagreen, who in 1885 sold a meatball between two slices of bread at the Seymour Fair, Wisconsin. Nagreen was fifteen when he was reportedly selling pork sandwiches at the 1885 Seymour Fair, made so customers could eat while walking. The Seymour Community Historical Society explains that Nagreen named the hamburger after the Hamburg steak with which local German immigrants were familiar.

There is no particular reason why this day is observed on May 28th.
