Drink a Beer Day? Need we say more?
Hallmark says today is Drink a Beer Day.
It's also Ask a Stupid Question Day.
These were tied together by our crack research staff as follows: We asked why we should drink beer today -- and our crack research staff said that was a stupid question to ask, especially on a Friday.
Today is also the Feast Day of St. Wenceslas. According to Wikipedia, Wenceslas was the Duke of Bohemia, assassinated on this date in 931, purportedly by his own brother, Boleslav the Cruel.
Wenceslas received a posthumous promotion to King -- and he is acclaimed as the patron saint of the Czechs -- and, of course, he is the "Good King Wenceslas" of the familiar Christmas carol.
