Origin of this holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did however find that this holiday has been celebrated for years. There is plenty of documentation to support that this holiday does indeed exist. This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that's celebrated.

Now let's learn: 
It is common for sweet turnovers to have a fruit filling and be made with a shortcrust pastry or puff pastry dough; savory turnovers generally contain meat and/or vegetables and can be made with any sort of dough, though a kneaded yeast dough seems to be the most common in Western cuisines. They are usually baked, but may be fried.
Savory turnovers are often sold as convenience foods in supermarkets. Savory turnovers with meat or poultry and identified as a turnover (for example, "Beef Turnover" or "Cheesy Chicken Turnover") have to meet a standard of identity or composition, and must contain a certain amount of meat or poultry.

Ingredients
Turnovers can be filled with everything from apples and blueberries, to meats like chicken, beef and pork, to cheese, raisins, cranberries and sweet potatoes, to wild rabbit and leeks.
