Awakenings: Toast the New Year!

on December 31, 2014

December 31 is…

National Champagne Day

 

With the celebration of New Year’s Eve comes the ever popular toast of the evening as flutes are raised containing the quintessential wine of celebration and good cheer…festive, bright, sparkling CHAMPAGNE! There are many sparkling wines on the market but there is only one champagne and it is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France, from which it takes its name.

There is a bit of controversy over this day’s celebration. It is thought the reason everyone celebrates December 31st as National Champagne Day is because of the New Year’s Eve saying – "It’s Champagne Day!" It is champagne day as far as the New Year’s celebration goes but as far as the National Holiday, it is more likely August 4.
