Many of you are probably like me and didn’t know today was a holiday until you checked social media this morning. As soon as I learned of this important holiday, I immediatly took a trip to the liquor store to pick up my favorite bottle of Moscato. The lady at the checkout gave me a sly little grin and I’m not sure if it was because she was also aware of the holiday or because it was 10 a.m. Regardless, here’s some reasons for all of you to get in the holiday spirit.
1. Everyone likes wine.
From the pickiest of alcohol drinkers to your great-grandmother, everyone enjoys a good glass of wine. This is a holiday that everyone can bond over. Keep it to the simple whites and no one will be complaining about that first sip.
2. Do it for the ‘gram.
Imagine it now. Grab your fanciest of wine glasses and the cutest bottle of wine and you’re automatically guaranteed to rack up the likes. Bonus points for cutting up some cheese slices to pair with it and pretending you’re actually at the vineyard.
3. National Wine Day won’t fall on Wine-sday for another six years.
It’s not every year that the stars align like this. Wednesday and wine go together flawlessly. It’s the middle of the week and the only way you’re surviving the rest of it is to come home and sink yourself into the perfect wine buzz.
4. $6 bottles of wine exist.
Wine can seriously be the cheapest of all alcohol so being a broke ass bitch is no excuse to skip over this holiday. There’s no shame in drinking some bottom-shelf wine if that’s all your bank account is willing to treat you to. Just be prepared for the inevitable hangover of the morning.
5. It won’t break your summer “diet.”
Wine is just a bunch of mashed up grapes, right? Some people even say that wine promotes weight loss. It’s truly a gift from the gods. Wine is fat-free and could even help you lose some of your own if that’s what you’re going for.
6. Red wine is actually ~good~ for you.
It seems like every time you watch the news they’re telling you to drink a glass of red wine each day. Since you probably haven’t been keeping up with this, why not drink a bunch today to make up for it? It’s supposed to reduce the risk of heart problems or something like that. All I know is that you should probably have a glass with dinner and finish the bottle for dessert.
7. You can get your craft on with the empties.
It’s summer and that probably means you’ve come across some free time. What better way to spend it than decorating a wine bottle or crafting something up from your collection of old corks. You’re only one Pinterest search away from a wine-inspired creation.
8. Because it’s just fun to get drunk.
Not that you needed an excuse to get drunk on a Wednesday, but this definitely helps the situation. Park yourself on your couch, invite over your bitches, and drink all the Riesling your heart desires. That’s exactly what this holiday is for, right?.
