The month of July is filled with national food days. In addition to all those days, there is a national hot dog day which is celebrated every year in the month of July. The date varies every year depending upon the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. The council hosts an annual hot dog lunch on Capitol Hill which marks the date for the national hot dog day every year. This is an informal event that is held in United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia. The festival is celebrated by eating as many hot dogs as possible along with other competitions and activities like face painting, wiener dog races, root beer chugging contests and much more. Most of the funds collected from these informal food holidays are given to the charity which is why people use to try to participate more and more. This staple food is enjoyed in many ways; it’s roasted or cooked, salted or grilled, garnished with ketchup, sauces, vinegar and much more.
How to observe it?
Have a campfire with your family and friends and roast as much hotdogs as possible and share your stories with your loved ones. Have competitions like who eats the most hot dogs and in how much time. Don’t forget the poor and the less fortunate on this festive holiday and donate to charity as much as possible.
