The Hungover Origins of Brunch

Brunch: the best meal of the week. But … where did this weekend tradition come from? Well back in Victorian England, meat-heavy, post-Sunday church meals were all the rage. But for Saturday night revelers, the idea of waking up early to eat piles of meat hurt worse than a bad hangover.
