Why the Sausagefest Holiday Calendar Matters

Did you know that October 4th is National Vodka Day? I sure didn’t and, as a result, did not celebrate this wonderful holiday. Had I known about National Vodka Day in advance, martinis would have been shaken! Same story with National Pizza and Beer Day, which falls on October 9th.

Staying on top of all these holidays is a daunting task and we certainly understand if you might have missed them. Don’t miss another holiday! Let the Sausagefest Holiday Calendar track them for you. Check back often and Happy Holidays!
