February 22nd is National Margarita Day, make it a Fiesta!
National Margarita Day happens each year on February 22nd. It was created by Todd McCalla, who wanted to spread his love for margaritas around the world. Todd even created a website to promote the day, aptly called nationalmargaritaday.com
Does it seem odd that National Margarita Day is at the end of February? In a word, yes, however who are we to complain. We love margaritas and the more reasons to drink them, the happier we are.
