Are you getting hungry by the mere sight of this burger? Well, we don’t blame you. The hamburger is by far one of the most well-liked and beloved foods in our modern culture. As the quintessential American comfort meal, the U.S. alone eats a whopping 13 billion hamburgers a year. (That’s a lot of meat.) But over the years, the simple meal has become a universal staple among many. With its growing popularity thanks to affordability and ease, the meaty sandwich has earned an annual holiday with many celebrating National Hamburger Month throughout the month of May.
Okay, so let’s be honest. A lot of us celebrate this everyday. But in what might sound like a joke at first, the fact remains that the hamburger is definitely worthy of a month in its honor.
