  1. A 1913 New York Times article on portmanteaus included the word 'alcoholiday' which describes leisure time spent drinking. Today is a big "alcoholiday" for many people. The first day of March Madness is a great alcoholiday. The Super Bowl is another. My favorite is Patriots Day in Massachusetts which is supposed to commemorate the Battle of Lexington and Concord but is now known as Boston Marathon Monday with a 10 o'clock Red Sox game thrown in to start the drinking festivities.

    Do you have a favorite alcoholiday?

    along with what have become famous drinking holidays like St. Patricks day and Cinco de Mayo, there are a couple that I have long felt needed to be added to the calender.

    Oct. 3, Tag der Deutschen Einheit. It will be like Cinco de Mayo but with better beer.

    Dec. 5, the anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment. What better reason to enjoy a beer than to celebrate your constitutional right of enjoying beer.

    March 31, the release date of Bells Oberon

    About 10 seconds after I get my son in bed. Nothing like being reminded on Dec. 24 that you've raised a greedy, amoral brat. Horrible but true.

    Any tailgate Saturday, baseball opening day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and other days that make me think of 'Merica.

    It's best to share your alcoholidays with those you love, petty.

    So probably best you get your own days. ;)
  11. Opening Day is a great alcoholiday. So are both days of the NFL Wildcard weekend.
