All the National Drink Holidays Your Need to Know About for 2020

If it seems like literally every single day there is someone celebrating National something day, it is because it is true. At some point in history, the National Days Czar joined the ranks of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Mother Nature, and the Tooth Fairy as some omnipotent holiday powerhouse telling us when to celebrate.

Even the most random things imaginable have a day dedicated to them (yes, I’m looking at you Dogs in Politics Day on Sept. 23rd). Of course, we know that these days were made up by marketing people but we love any good reason to celebrate with a drink So plan your drink specials and social media posts, here are some of the drinking holidays coming up.
