Why Dec. 5 - The End of Prohbition - Should be a Holiday
[GP] December 5, 1933 marked the ratification of the 21st Amendment repealing prohibition, and the good folks at RepealDay.org want America to celebrate:
Unlike St. Patrick’s Day or Cinco de Mayo, Repeal Day is a day that all Americans have a part in observing, because it’s written in our Constitution. No other holiday celebrates the laws that guarantee our rights, and Repeal Day has everything to do with our personal pleasures.
[GP] Even better, celebrating this new holiday seems pretty easy:
There are no outfits to buy, costumes to rent, rivers to dye green. Simply celebrate the day by stopping by your local bar, tavern, saloon, winery, distillery, or brewhouse and having a drink. Pick up a six-pack on your way home from work. Split a bottle of wine with a loved one. Buy a shot for a stranger. Just do it because you can.
