Often referred as Drinksgiving…this day takes place the night before Thanksgiving Day. While many people are at home cooking and preparing the bird for the big day, others are partaking in the biggest drinking and party night of the year.
College students are home on break and reuniting with friends that they haven’t seen in a while at bars and clubs. Most bars are aware of the “quirky holiday” and have drink specials to celebrate the occasion.
A sad repercussion of the day is that a lot of think binge drinking and celebrating results in drinking and driving. This in turn produces accidents and fatalities. If you or someone you love is planning to celebrate this day, please encourage them to drink responsibly, use a ride share/Uber/Lyft service or have a designated driver. It a wonderful thing to reunite with friends, but be safe so that the day can be enjoyed again next year.
