Why Is This Bread Sliced Horizontally?

Redditor /u/minecolas1 brings this interesting photo to our attention. Why does this grocery store offer standard sliced bread loaves sliced horizontally instead of vertically?

Redditor /u/Phantom_Wapiti offers an answer. A popular Quebecois dish at Christmastime is a pain sandwich. That makes a little more sense when you learn that “pain” is the French word for bread. This food consists of various deli mixes, such as egg salad, chopped ham, or chicken salad layered between slices of bread arranged like a layer cake. Cream cheese is the most common “frosting”. Chop off a slice and serve it with a fork.
