Who knew so many celebratory food and bevvie days happen so close together during this time of year?!
In the past few weeks, we’ve celebrated Burger Day, Doughnut Day, and Cheese Day, and now, it’s time for World Gin Day!
According to the official website, WGD is “a day for everyone and anyone (over drinking age of course…!) to celebrate and enjoy gin! Whether you’re already a fan of the juniper spirit, or looking for an intro, World Gin Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved.”
Originally created by a little group of friends in Birmingham in 2009, the day is now “a truly global celebration with events running in over 30 countries around the world, reaching over 200 million people on social channel.”
WE ACCEPT THIS TRADITION!
