It is a American tradition to return home the night before Thanksgiving. In preparation for Aunt Martha’s weekend with her pumpkin pie, many Americans spend the night before at a bar to catch up with old friends from out of town. DrinksGiving may be more popular than New Year’s Eve or St. Patrick’s Day in some cities.
Although Thanksgiving has been celebrated since 1621 and has been observed on a Thursday in October since the 1800s; DrinksGiving is a new tradition. It was born naturally by American college students who would return home from college to celebrate Thanksgiving and then go out with their friends that night to share a drink.
DrinksGiving, which is an important time to come home, always occurs on Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving. It’s a great time to meet up with old school friends and enjoy a few drinks before heading out to spend the weekend with your family.
Some people have a hard time accepting the idea of Thanksgiving weekend spending with their families. Going out to drink the night before could be an option.
DrinksGiving is a tradition that has existed for decades. However, the clever term “DrinksGiving” was probably invented sometime in 2007. DrinksGiving, also known as Blackout Wednesday or Thanksgiving Eve is a holiday that can be enjoyed but should be accompanied by safety precautions. This is actually the night in which drunk driving statistics are highest in certain cities.
Have fun, but be safe when you celebrate DrinksGiving with a glass of wine and catching up old friends.
