Facts about
In North America, pastrami is typically sliced and served hot on rye bread, a classic New York deli sandwich (pastrami on rye), sometimes accompanied by coleslaw and Russian dressing. Pastrami and coleslaw are also combined in a Rachel sandwich, a variation of the popular Reuben sandwich that traditionally uses corned beef and sauerkraut.

In Los Angeles, classic pastrami sandwiches usually use hot pastrami right out of the steamer, sliced and layered on double-baked Jewish-style rye bread. Typically, the meat is served sliced very thinly, with some of the brine wetting the meat; traditionally accompanied by yellow mustard and pickles. At fast food stands, pastrami is typically served hot on a French roll. Pastrami may also be used as a topping on hamburgers.
Israeli Pastrami sandwich, made with pita bread, harissa, and roasted peppers

Greek immigrants to Salt Lake City in the early 1960s introduced a hamburger topped with pastrami and a special sauce. The pastrami burger has remained a staple of local burger chains in Utah.

Variations
Turkey pastrami is made by processing turkey breast (pale pink) or thigh (dark pink) in a fashion similar to red meat pastrami, simulating the red meat deli product.

Sandwich Origin
New York's Sussman Volk is generally credited with producing the first pastrami sandwich in 1887. Volk, a kosher butcher, claimed he got the recipe from a Romanian friend in exchange for storing the friend's luggage while the friend returned to Romania. According to his descendant, Patricia Volk, Volk prepared pastrami according to the recipe and served it on sandwiches out of his butcher shop. The sandwich was so popular that Volk converted the butcher shop into a restaurant to sell pastrami sandwiches.

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the true creator of this day, but it seems we did find the origin of this day.
Why the month of January and why the 13th day??  That's the question...
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day as all food and drink holidays are.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a food holiday that is publicized to celebrate.

We found  recognition from...
calendar sites, food sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday. We also found reference to this day on food related websites and baker websites since marzipan is considered a dessert.
