History and Origin of Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. Like many other food holidays, one could ask “why”. But, the way we see it, the more special days, the merrier. Life is too short. So, let’s always have a reason to celebrate.

In our first study, this holiday was called Grilled Cheese Day. In our second study, some internet websites were calling it National Grilled Cheese Day. We find this odd, as it apparently did not come from the unknown creator of the holiday. Also, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.

Definition of “National” Days – and why it is important to distinguish true National days.
