Happy Cheeseburger Day!
Food lovers worldwide are celebrating Cheeseburger Day 2014, which has over the years, become one of the most popular unofficial food celebration days.
National Cheeseburger Day is always observed in the US on the 18th day of September each year.
While there is no official record supporting the origin of Cheeseburger Day, there are several stories that suggest how the unofficial holiday came into existence.
"One story claims that the cheeseburger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger," states Punchbowl.
"As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger's restaurant in Pasadena, Calif., suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added it to his menu, and the rest is history."
Each year, all national fast food chains and local burger joints offer great cheeseburger deals on National Cheeseburger Day.
