National Happy Hour Day
The National Happy Hour Day is commemorated on November 12 of every year. National Happy Hour Day is created to take advantage of Happy Hours at your favourite restaurant, bar, or cafe. Happy hour is a name used to indicate a period on a day when companies sell drinks and food at a discount.
“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happy hour, the long weekend, the all-inclusive island resort, the sunny beach vacation. Happiness is somewhere else, someplace with boat drinks, some secret, distant state of bliss which if they were given would bore them in minutes.” – Geoffrey Wood
History of National Happy Hour Day
The Origin and the history of Happy Hour Day are still unknown. “Happy hour” is a marketing term used to represent the time in which a restaurant or bar gives discounts on alcoholic drinks like beer, cocktails and wine. Happy Hours includes the sale of two drinks or two cocktails for the cost of one. It is intended to promote business on what may otherwise be a slow day. In some places, the “happy hour” lasts longer than a single hour. Many countries ban Happy Hours in bars as it will encourage over drinking and alcoholism.
