September 14, 2020 – National Live Creative Day | National Eat a Hoagie Day

Is It A Hero, A Grinder Or A Sub?

Welcome to September 14th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate mixing things up, from our own routines to a popular sandwich.

If you think you’re not creative, think again.  Most of us spend at least a little time each day thinking outside the box. On National Live Creative Day, it’s all about changing things up to give your conscious brain a break from trying to keep it all in check.  Try tuning into a show that is halfway finished and let your mind fill in the missing plot info or back story. Or consider taking a different route along the way to doing errands.  Whenever you can break up your routine, you give your brain a chance to explore some uncharted territory, before it can give you the same excuses for why you’re not an artist or musician.  On National Live Creative Day, expand your perspective on what it means to be creative.

Most foods are known by just one name, but the submarine sandwich varies widely by region. Depending on where you live, you may call it a sub, hero, or grinder. But did you know the name hoagie goes back to World War I? During that time in Philadelphia there were a lot of Italian immigrants working the shipyards on Hog Island and they were known for packing delicious sandwiches for lunch. The sandwiches became known as hoggies in honor of the island where they worked. Though the Philly accent probably explains how ‘hoggies’ became ‘hoagies’, a sandwich by any other name will taste just as delicious.  Celebrate National Eat a Hoagie Day with a sandwich of your own, but be prepared to change up the name depending on where you live.
