National Buffet Day comes on January 2 of every year. It is a day celebrated to honor the Buffet system. Buffets are a system or method of serving meals where the foods will be placed in a single location, and the people can serve themselves by choosing the food that they like. Buffets are held at different locations like restaurants and hotels and maybe in several social event programs. So National Buffet Day is a day to enjoy your favorite food by heading into your favorite buffet-style restaurant.
History of National Buffet Day
The exact origin and the founder of the day are still unknown. The Buffet system originated from brannvinsbord, a type of schnapps made in Sweden in the middle of the 16th Century. It slowly starts to develop in the 18th century and developed into the modern world around the beginning of the 19th century. The Smörgåsbord buffet has not developed until the railroads were expanded into Europe. The Smörgåsbord buffet is a type of meal where the guests will be gathered before dinner and have small talk before dinner.
This kind of buffet is usually held in separate rooms where one room is for men, and another room is for women. In 1939 the Smörgåsbord buffet became internationally the “smorgasbord” in the Newyork world’s Fair Exhibition. The term Buffet is referring to the French Type sideboard furniture where the food was served but populated in the English-speaking world in the 20th century after Sweden popularized the Smörgåsbord in New York.
