National Egg Roll Day is celebrated yearly in honor of one of the most underrated appetizers on the planet.

Tell me you haven't had an egg roll. If you're here, you've probably had one or two.

If you don't know what an egg roll is, Just Served explains them like this:

A thick, deep-fried crust encloses a bundle of shredded vegetables, mainly cabbage, interspersed with a few tiny morsels of roast pork, perhaps shrimp, and some slivers of carrot for color.

Any Day Guide says Van's Kitchen came up with National Egg Roll Day, and "the date of the holiday was picked to commemorate the company's founding anniversary and honor its founders, Van and Kim Nguyen, who came from Vietnam in 1966 with $40 in their pocket and made their American Dream come true 20 years later."
