Big Sandwich Night: One Family's Tradition

Tumblr user mousemilf shares an endearing story of a holiday invented by her father. She grew up celebrating "Big Sandwich Night" -- a day when the entire family made a huge sandwich and ate it together:

I can see how this event could become popular. We need community, especially in-person community.

For a few years, my daughters and I celebrated Derpy Day, which is a brony holiday in which people bake muffins together in honor of Derpy, a minor character on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The girls eventually figured out that no one else at their school celebrated this particular holiday.

Does your family celebrate any unique holidays?

I can't remember if it was after Ash Wednesday or Good Friday (or both), but my parents would eat an Italian sandwich after mid-night. The "Holiday" didn't have a name, but I guess you could call it Fat Thursday or Fat Saturday? Might be more of a tradition than a holiday.
