National Hot Dog Day is In the Pink - Postcard Friendship Friday # 21
July 23rd is National Hot Dog Day in America! I chose this postcard because hot dogs and baseball go together, er, hand and glove.
No one knows how this holiday got started, but perhaps we celebrate this day because Hot dogs are an American tradition. Hot Dogs are roasted on the grill and at picnics all across the country. They are at the ballpark. They are sold from carts on street corners in every city. They are toasted on sticks over back yard barbecue pits and over woodland camp fires. It's not hard to find them.
Each year Americans buy over 837 packages of hot dogs and at baseball stadiums 24 million hot dogs are consumed. They are delicious! So what's in a Hot dog? Don't ask--sometimes it's best if you don't know!
Happy National Hot Dog Day!
I apologize that I must combine Pink Saturday with PFF because I will be away from my computer until Monday. Thank you for your patience! Be sure to drop by Gemma's Weekend Mailbox for more fun mail-related stuff.
