December 24th National Egg Nog Day

How nice that National Egg Nog Day falls on Christmas Eve. That drink that is so creamy and filled with flavor even before you add your rum, vodka or cognac. Now I know there are people out there that think Egg Nog is too thick but how many other drinks can you name that you can drink and eat at the same time! It is so good that they have made it into coffee creamers, ice cream and even pieces of candy! If you don’t like Egg Nog, good luck avoiding it today because it is, after-all, National Egg Nog Day.

How to celebrate – Have some Egg Nog! Make your own Egg Nog, even though it’s cheaper to just buy it. Have a Merry Christmas Eve.

December 24th National Egg Nog Day

It seems only natural that we should celebrate National Egg Nog Day on Christmas Eve. There is no other drink so associated with the holidays as egg nog. You can make it yourself, you can buy it in a store and you can add a little whiskey or cognac, or both, for the adults in your crowd. It’s become a tradition in many families, starting around Thanksgiving and lasting until the end of the year before being put up for the next season. I was unable to find a true history of egg nog, though honestly I didn’t look real hard for it, but it seems to have been around since the middle ages. It’s simple enough to make, is sweet and flavorful and requires nothing that wasn’t readily available even 800 years ago. So before it disappears again for another year make sure you add egg nog to your parties and holiday get togethers. If you don’t like egg nog, just add a bit more booze and you won;t even know you are drinking it.
