 0aaNATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY

 For lunch or dinner, America’s favorite sandwich is topped off with a piece of cheese and then enjoyed by millions and celebrated each year on September 18 as it is National Cheeseburger Day.

There are many theories to the beginning of the cheeseburger dating back to the 1920′s.  One story suggests that Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926 while working at his father’s Pasadena, California sandwich shop, “The Rite Spot”.  During an experiment, he dropped a slice of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.

There are other claims the invention of the cheeseburger:

  • A cheeseburger appeared on a 1928 menu at O’Dell’s, a Los Angeles restaurant, which listed a cheeseburger, smothered with chili. for 25 cents.
  • Kaelin’s Restaurant – Louisville, Kentucky says it invented the cheeseburger in 1934.
  • 1935 – A trademark for the name “cheeseburger” was awarded to Louis Ballast of the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, Colorado.
  • According to it’s archives, Gus Belt, founder of Steak n’ Shake, applied for a trademark on the word “cheeseburger” in the 1930′s.

To celebrate National Cheeseburger Day, gather some friends together, start up your barbecue grills, grill some hamburger patties, add your favorite cheese, then enjoy!

Our History

Hi. We are National Day Calendar. We are a couple of individuals who had an idea to research all the unique National Days and post our findings on one website.  After a year and a half, we have completed that project although we are still researching the history of a few of the days.   We are humbled by the fact that so many people follow us including many in the media.  The site,www.NationalDayCalendar.com has been a hobby.  However, as the site becomes increasingly more popular, our costs rise accordingly.  So we have been working on ideas on how to fund the growth.  Click here for more info or to order.

  • The second calendar will also be a 12″ x 12″ (12″ x 24″ when opened) 24 page calendar.  There will be NO artwork, but the day blocks are supersized!  Half of the month will appear above the fold and the other half below with plenty of room to write in each day block as well as larger print to see from a distance.   These calendars will be printed on the same 100 lb. gloss paper and saddle stitched.

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day

0aa

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is an American federal observance that commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of the United States and those who have become United States citizens.  This day is observed  each year on September 17, which is the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.

This holiday dates all the way back to 1911 where schools in Iowa first recognized Constitution Day.  The Sons of the American Revolution formed a committee to promote Constitution Day in 1917.  Calvin Coolidge, John D. Rockefeller and General John Pershing were part of that committee.

In 1940, “I am an American Day” was created and named as an official day by President Roosevelt.  At this time, Congress named the third Sunday in May as the day to celebrate.  By 1949, the governors of all 48 states had issued Constitution Day proclamations.  On February 29, 1952, Congress changed the name from “I am an American Day” to “Citizenship Day” and moved it’s observation to September 17. 

In 2004, it was then changed to Constitution Day and Citizenship Day.

Happy Constitution Day and Citizenship Day!
