Repeal Day

Dec 5th, Repeal DayLocal Eugene alcohol expert, Jeffrey Morganthaler, has a very good idea for a new drinking holiday. It’s even based in the constitution:

“Repeal Day (December 5th) is not celebrated by anyone in this country, yet it is the only day which truly has any connection with alcohol. December 5th is the anniversary of the day the United States repealed the Eighteenth Amendment and gave us all the constitutional right to consume alcohol. I’ve been celebrating Repeal Day for years by forcing this information down the throats of my customers, and now I’m forcing it on you. Here are a few reasons why I think Repeal Day should be a major drinking holiday in the United States…

Mark your calendar and go check out his reasoning for why this holiday beats any other!

It is a great idea! I just wish it was repealed sometime in March. I have plenty of excuses to drink from November to January.
