Legal Drinking Age Day

July 21, 2022

Legal Drinking Age Day - July 21

Legal Drinking Age Day is a day when, on the one hand, you can remember your first sip of alcohol, and on the other hand, it reminds you that minors drinking alcohol is prohibited. Every year on July 21, millions of people become nostalgic about drinking their first glass of wine or beer, and encourage young people to drink more responsibly. If you have reached the age of majority, celebrate Legal Drinking Age Day with friends with a glass of your favorite alcohol.

The History

According to Americans, the age at which drinking is officially allowed is unreasonably high. Many do not understand why a person can be legally married, raise children, fight, own a weapon, and drive a car, but not drink alcohol. A legislative act that established a minimum age for self-purchasing and drinking alcohol was passed by the US Congress in July 1984. In accordance with current regulations, for a person to buy alcohol, they must be over 21 years old, and persons under 21 years of age are only allowed to drink alcohol under the supervision of adults. Many European countries are more lenient in this matter. Some believe that a direct ban on alcohol consumption encourages a child to drink in secret from adults.

Ernest Hemingway was a famous master of drinking, which is probably why Legal Drinking Age Day is celebrated on this writer’s birthday – July 21st.
