holiday cigarsspecial events

Yeah, every day of the year was meant for smoking our precious cigars. Whether you do one a week, one a day, or five times a day, it’s always the right time for a good cigar. But a holiday seems to be an especially good time to have a smoke with friends and family, celebrating the good things in life together.


Maybe it’s an excuse to just have another gar, but a holiday smoke is something a bit more special, as if you are commemorating the day to the fullest. Firing up a stogie is always associated with good times and holidays are supposed to be just that.


We’ll start at the… well, at the start, New Years Eve. Okay, it cold for those up north and the smoking laws kill a lot of chances for lighting up inside, but having a nice cigar on New Year’s Eve is definitely special. The old year is kind of whisked away by the smoke that fades into the sky above. And since it’s cold, and the women usually despise the smell, us guys are often relegated to the garage with a space heater, but that’s certainly okay by me. Just make sure the gas cans are sealed when the torches are let loose. But hey, it’s followed up by New Year’s Day – a full day of kicking back, college football, and now the NHL plays their outdoor classic, which is an amazing treat to watch. Damn, I can smoke a whole bundle of the good stuff on a lazy-ass day like this – especially after a night of drinking and partying, who wants to really do anything else? Bowl games and beer are a hell of a combination.


Next we move onto the Super Bowl. Not an official holiday, you say? Ha! The Super Bowl is the second highest food consumption day in the United States, directly behind Thanksgiving. It is for many, the cultural event of the year and if your team isn’t in the big game, it doesn’t matter because the food and friends are enough to keep you partying through the course of the day. Lets start with buffalo wings and beer. Now a guy could live on that for months, but there are so many other choices: chips, dips, sub sandwiches, pasta, pizza, salads, and a plethora of pick food to keep your hands busy for six hours straight. And firing up the cigars is a fantastic ritual that really makes a guy want to scratch himself and grunt. In fact I’m scratching and grunting just thinking about it! Somebody toss me a pigskin, damn it – my testosterone level is dangerously high!
