Daily Holidays - July 24

National Tequila Day we all know tequila is synonymous with margarita, so let’s take a look at this frozen favourite.
There is no definitive answer as to who really invented this drink, but interesting stories abound. One of the earliest stories tells of a wealthy Dallas socialite inventing the drink at a Christmas party in Acapulco in 1948. Tommy Hilton of the Hilton Hotel chain reportedly attended the party, and took the recipe home to serve at his hotels. Another suggests that it is merely based on an American drink called the Daisy, which was made with brandy instead of tequila. The Spanish word for “Daisy” is “Margarita”; hence the name. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/tequila-day/

Cousins Day Remember those fun times at grandpa and grandma’s house when the whole family reunited and you spent countless hours playing with your cousins while the grownups discussed politics and mortgages? Many of us grew up around our cousins, spending summer and winter breaks with them and slowly walking into life together. Then came college and that amazing job opportunity out of state, and we gradually lost touch. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/cousins-day/

National Drive-Thru Day Drive-Thru Day encourages you to live on the wild side. Forget about buying locally sourced produce, organic vegetables, and getting your five a day; sometimes you don’t have the time or energy to cook good, nutritious food from scratch, and on Drive-Thru Day you can take a short-cut without feeling guilty! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/drive-thru-day/

Tell An Old Joke Day We all know someone for whom every day is Tell An Old Joke Day, but there’s now a day when we can all put aside our reticence and let rip with our own ‘I say, I say, I say’ and ‘Knock, knock’ chestnuts.https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/tell-an-old-joke-day/

1. Thanks for the reminder!

I really need to give my cousins a call. None of us have sisters and we used to be close, but it's been awhile...

3. I have "dozens of cousins"!



My mom had six sisters and two brothers; my dad had five brothers and two sisters. Unfortunately, I am still in touch with only a couple of them. Our family scattered to the four winds when everyone grew up.
