NATIONAL VIRGINIA DAY
On September 14, National Virginia Day recognizes one of the original 13 colonies and the 10th state to ratify the Constitution.
Mountains in the west stretch south and east toward swamps and islands. The population is as varied as the scenery, too. From the picturesque small towns of the Old Dominion state to bustling cities and cavernous valleys, the state’s complex depth of history and topography creates unique and breathtaking experiences.
Virginia’s proximity to Washington D.C. makes it ideal for government commuters and tourism to the U.S. Capital. Many of our nation’s headquarters can be found in Virginia including the Central Intelligence Agency, National Fish and Wild Life Service, and the Department of Defense. Many of these agencies can be found in the world’s largest office building, the Pentagon! In fact, more Virginians work for the U.S. government than any other state.
On National Virginia Day, we explore the people, the places, and the flavors that have developed long before European settlers arrived.

The grinder, the sub and the hero, the po’boy and the Italian sandwich along with the torpedo are all recognized on National Eat a Hoagie Day on September 14.
The hoagie consists of meats, cheeses, vegetables, sauces and seasonings on a long roll of Italian or French bread. The origin of this giant sandwich is a bit of mystery.
The origin of this giant sandwich is a bit of mystery. The epicenter of the controversy seems to be eastern Pennsylvania where the DiCostanzas and DePalmas lay claim to being the first to make the hoagie. One family claims to have been making the sandwich since 1923 and the other since 1925. But who has the proof?
Another story from the Philadelphia area during World War I describes large Italian sandwiches shipyard workers would bring to work wrapped in newspaper to help them get through their long days. The massive sandwiches were nicknamed “hoggies” because anyone eating them at one sitting would have to be a hog. The transformation of the word to “hoagie” is explained by the Philadelphia accent which often exaggerates vowel sounds.
At one time if a kid skipped school it was called being “on the hook” or “playing hokey.” A “hokey” sandwich could be bought for a price a kid on the lam could afford, and eventually “hokey” became “hoagie” especially if the kids were skipping school.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Stop off at your favorite food joint and pick up a hoagie. Use #NationalHoagieDay on social media.
The origins of National Hoagie Day is unknown.
