Eggnog Day And Christmas Eve Are On The Same Day
Since Dec. 24th is Eggnog Day and Christmas Eve, Eggnog makes the perfect punch to make some wonderful holiday toasts with. Growing up, Eggnog was a part of my family's holiday tradition and I still like to make a batch for my family.
Eggnog's origins are iffy, we don't know exactly where this drink came from. It is probably from Europe, somewhere. In 1826 an event called the "Eggnog Riot" was a big mess that included the court martial of 20 cadets and an enlisted soldier. They were sneaking whiskey into their barracks to mix up a batch of eggnog for Christmas. Thank goodness making eggnog is much easier for us than it was for them!
