National Lobster Day is a holiday dedicated to a crustacean, which until recently was considered a delicacy. Just think, there was a time when Boston beans sold for 53 cents a pound and lobster for 11 cents. At that time, there were so many lobsters in New England, they were served to prisoners. Undoubtedly, this is a food item that has gone from rags to riches. That is why September 25 is dedicated to this uncommon dish.
Why We Love National Lobster Day
Who came up with a holiday dedicated to lobsters and why is not known for certain. However, it is known exactly why this dish is so popular. Its history is unique and unusual – at first, lobster meat was used as prison food, and later it turned into a delicacy that was served as an exotic dish on the railway.

- It is noteworthy that spending money on a lobster is considered fashionable; even those who are used to saving money, buy it from time to time.
