Happy Hour Day
November 12 is Happy Hour Day. So, on this unofficial fun holiday take advantage of happy hours at your favorite bar, cafe or restaurant.
Happy hour is a term used to refer to a period of time during a day when establishments sell drinks and food at a discount. While traditionally offered by bars, restaurants today also hold happy hours and offer appetizers at reduced prices. Usually, a happy hour includes two drinks or two appetizers for the price of one.
Many countries ban happy hours in bars due to the fear that it will encourage binge drinking and alcoholism.
How to Celebrate?
Happy Happy Hour Day! Here are some ways to celebrate this fun holiday:
- Go out for happy hour with your friends and co-workers and get two of your favorite beverages for the price of one. Remember to always drink responsibly.
- Don't drink? That doesn't mean you can't enjoy happy hour. Many restaurants and coffee shops have happy hour prices on appetizers and hors-d'oeuvre. Enjoy these while sipping a non-alcoholic beverage.
Did You Know…
…that the happy hour began as an event in the military? It is believed that the term comes from events organized by a club called the Happy Hour Social for the United States Navy in 1913.
On Thanksgiving day, a little boy overhears his mom and dad fighting. He hears his mom call his dad a bastard and hears his dad call his mom a bitch.
He asks, "Mommy, what does bastard mean?"
She answers, "Um, it means boy."
Then he asks, "Daddy, what does bitch mean?"
He says, "Uh, it means girl."
Later that day, the boy sees his father in the bathroom shaving; the dad accidentally cuts himself and says, "Sh*t."
The son asks, "What does that mean?"
The dad says, "It means shaving cream."
Then he sees his mom in the kitchen carving the turkey; she accidentally cuts herself and says, "F*ck."
The son asks her what that word means and she says, "It means carving."
That evening, the family's guests arrive for Thanksgiving dinner. The son opens the door to welcome them and says, "Welcome bitches and bastards! My dad is in the bathroom rubbing sh*t on his face and my mom is in the kitchen f*cking the turkey."
Two guys are standing in line to enter heaven. One turned around and asked the other how he died.
"I froze to death. How about you?"
"I had a heart attack."
"How did that happen?"
"Well, I suspected my wife was cheating on me. So after work I went straight home. I ran upstairs to find my wife sleeping by herself. Then I ran back downstairs and looked in all the hiding spots. When I was running back up the stairs, I had a heart attack."
"If you would've looked in the fridge, we'd both be alive."
Paddy and Murphy are havin' a pint in the pub, when some scuba divers come on the TV.
Paddy says, "Murphy, why is it them deep sea divers always sit on the side of the boat with them air tanks on their backs, and fall backwards out of the boat?"
Murphy thinks for a minute then says, "That's easy. It's 'cos if they fell forwards, they'd still be in the friggin boat!"
Two old friends, Ned and John, lived for baseball. Then one day, John died, leaving Ned inconsolable.
A few weeks later, Ned heard someone calling his name. He looked up. Standing on a cloud was his old pal.
“Ned,” John called down, “I have good news and bad. The good news is, there’s baseball in heaven!”
“Great,” said Ned. “What’s the bad news?”
“You’re pitching Sunday.”
I Guarantee that some group of idiots would try to bring
it back to life if they ever find viable genetic material.
