Britain doesn’t need a National Alcohol Day in much the same way as it doesn’t need a Straight Pride Parade or National Tea and Biscuits Week. The very existence of such a celebration begs the question “when exactly is it not National Alcohol Day?”. Not a country to turn down an opportunity to drink, however, we haven’t let this stop us.
The Feast of St Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland – who by all accounts was a serious and devout man – has historically served this purpose. This seems to be due to a combination of factors: St Patrick’s Day typically falling in or around Lent, and the existence of a widespread stereotype associating the Irish and Irish Diaspora communities with liquid festivities.
To commemorate the day, we’ve come up with a solution to the aspect of St Patrick’s day least worthy of celebration. The hangover. Check out our 7-step hangover busting skin care routine.

You could take a few moments in the shower to reflect on your previous night’s exploits. Or not.
