Need A Reason To Celebrate? How About To The End Of This Challenging Year
Global Champagne Day is Oct. 19, and maybe we can pop the cork to 2020 almost being over because that would certainly be something to celebrate.
After all, with closures, shutdowns, the cancelation of events all around the globe, travel at a standstill and illnesses not seen in a century, this has been a year we all want to put in our rear-view mirrors as quickly as possible.
Created by American blogger Chris Oggenfuss who wanted to honor the wine of kings (champagne), Global Champagne Day is a global online event, and an opportunity to enjoy the refinement of French sparkling wine and an excuse to drink it or any wine, really.
We will drink to that, of course.
Global Champagne Day – which some also call International Champagne Day – is something for everyone to post on their social media channels – the social media hashtag is #champagneday – and it is also celebrated in the French region of Champagne.
And while champagne actually needs to be from that region to be called champagne, it is okay to include Cava, Prosecco and sparkling wines in your posts. After all, this a day for all types of #winelovers, not just those who drink the actual champagne.
Oct. 19 is on a Monday this year. Although with the way things are in 2020 when days of the week do not matter as much as they have in the past, you can pretend it’s a Saturday, or whatever day of the week you like the best.
