Celebrated on the 1st Thursday of every April. Since New York City is the only city to legally recognize a Burrito as a sandwich, this was added to our Sandwich Holiday list specifically for them.
Why is is a burrito considered to be a sandwich in New York City?
According to the NY State Department of Taxation and Finance, hot dogs and burritos are both considered sandwiches. The latter food item falls in the sandwich bucket because the tortilla makes it a “wrap,” and the NY state government believes that wraps are sandwiches. Hence, for this fact alone, we believe this holiday is worthy of being recognized the world over. The origin of this holiday is unknown.
When is National Burrito Day?
Sometimes it is difficult to remember this special Sandwich Holiday, so we have created a table that lists every National Burrito Day for the next 25 years!
