National Rum Day: Cheers!
When it comes to holidays, Aug. 16 is a biggy! Not only is it National Bratwurst Day and National Tell a Joke Day, today also celebrates a refreshing spirit! Get ready to raise your glass, America. It's National Rum Day in the U.S.A!
While the origins of this “spirited” holiday are unknown, people have been enjoying rum for centuries. Originally used for medicinal purposes, rum was actually a particular favorite of pirates. Shiver me timbers! While the Caribbean is known for its distinct rum, rum is produced all over the world today.
