It's not 1492 anymore, so most Americans can't exactly relate when our country sets aside a day each year to celebrate Christopher Columbus sailing the ocean blue. Christmas comes with an obligation to purchase gifts. And, let's face it, Valentine's Day is really just for women. However, there is one holiday almost every American can celebrate, and it is today: National Drink Beer Day.
While Thanksgiving is full of turkey and football, it often is attached with lingering family drama. Sure, July 4th has its fireworks, but not every state allows us a roman candle to shoot off. There is one holiday, though, that each American over the age of 21-years-old has been allowed to celebrate since prohibition lifted in 1933, and that's National Drink Beer Day.
No one really knows why we have President's Day, and it seems like everyone else but the average American worker gets a holiday like Boss' Day or Secretary's Day. But, there is one holiday just for that average working American, National Drink Beer Day.
Easter and Halloween are for children, and not everyone likes a bunny or witch, but there is one holiday that beats all others and that's National Drink Beer Day.

While Flag Day is a little weird, and Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in the wrong country, one day is not that weird at all and just makes plain sense, and that's National Drink Beer Day.
April Fool's Day is for the comics, and Earth Day is for the hippies, but there is one day where the two can collide, and that's National Drink Beer Day.
Tax Day just plain sucks, and St. Patrick's Day is kind of Irish, but there is another day that's more American, National Drink Beer Day.
Celebrating Birthdays is lame when it's not yours, and Groundhog Day is really a Pennsylvania thing, but there is one holiday for everyone, National Drink Beer Day.
New Year's Eve is alright, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is pretty cool, but there is one day that trumps them all and that's National Drink Beer Day.
Now go grab your comrades and foes, and get your boss to go, it's National Drink Beer Day today, and everyone should know.
