Time for another made-up food holiday.

Wednesday is National Hot Dog Day, which means restaurants across the country have free or discounted dogs.

The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council estimates Americans will eat 7 billion hot dogs between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.

Wednesday also is National Daiquiri Day and July is National Hot Dog Month, National Ice Cream Month, National Grilling Month, National Horseradish Month, National Baked Bean Month, etc.
