Boike writes, “I’m paying a little extra tribute to the red, white, and blue as we prepare for the upcoming 4th of July celebrations! Just a few fun financial facts about this beloved tribute to our country’s independence from England.”

“First up,” says Boike, “hot dogs which are likely to be on almost everyone’s menu this day!” He continues adding, “The tradition of eating hot dogs on the 4th of July allegedly began way back in 1916 when “four immigrants gathered at the very first Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand in Coney Island. As the story goes, they were competing to see who was the most patriotic.” Boike shares, “However, it wasn’t until 1972 that the annual hot dog-eating contest was first recorded. Today there’s big money to be won. The grand winner takes home $10,000 with incrementally smaller prizes going to the other contestants. The total prize pool is a whopping $40,000! Roughly 150 million hot dogs are sold annually on the 4th of July.”
