Open That Bottle Night

Open That Bottle Night, February calendar holliday.

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on the last Saturday in February

Open That Bottle Night is one of the few special events, that is proclaimed as an evening event. This means that you can begin to celebrate at 5:00 pm. Now, as I recall, "It's five o'clock somewhere!!".

Open That Bottle Night has a very special purpose. Dorothy Gaither and John Becher created this day to encourage people to re-connect with each other over a good bottle of wine or champagne. Short of that, a bottle of Scotch or Bourbon will certainly suffice. But importantly, it is not a day to drink alone or to binge drink. Rather, you should open a bottle with your spouse, lover, family members  or good friends, especially those whom you may have lost touch with over the years. Having a spat with someone? Share a bottle of wine with them, and iron out those differences. After all, life is too short to argue or fight..

Note: Please drink responsibly.

History and Origin of Open That Bottle Night:

This special day was created in 2000 by "Tastings" columnists Dorothy J. Gaither and John Brecher

Some sources incorrectly state that Open That Bottle Night is on a set, fixed day every year. The creators specifically established this day on the last Saturday in February. So, the date changes every year.
