May28 Fun Holiday – Hamburger Day

Celebrate the humble, but delicious hamburger on May 28, Hamburger Day.

Sink your teeth into a delicious hamburger.


While the hamburger owes its name to the city of Hamburg in Germany, the hamburger, as it is known and loved today worldwide – a meat patty wedged inside two slices of bun, is distinctly an American invention.

The unofficial holiday is also sometimes known as National Hamburger Day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Eat hamburgers for all your meals on this day.
  • Gourmet up your burgers by adding toppings like caramelized onions and mushrooms and blue cheese.
  • Host a backyard barbecue and treat your guests to delicious homemade burgers.

Did You Know…

…that during the Second World War, American soldiers tried to rename the hamburger as liberty burger.
