Sandwich Day is November 3rd
John Montague, born in 1718, was an English nobleman who loved to play cards. Once in 1762 he played cards at a men's club in London for 24 hours straight. He didn't want to push his luck by leaving the table to eat, so he asked that some roasted meats and cheeses be brought to him between two slices of bread so that he could hold his food in one hand and his cards in the other. The new food, the sandwich, was named for him, the Earl of Sandwich. Montague's time-saving nourishment idea caught on quickly and changed the eating habits of people forever.
