Cheers to Repeal Day!

Happy Repeal Day

Today, December 5, 2013, marks the 80th anniversary of  Repeal Day. The day when America ended it’s 13-year ban on the manufacture, import and sale of alcohol. Though, possession and consumption was still allowed. However, America made it’s “last call for alcohol” on January 17, 1920 when the 18th Amendment went into effect. My mind automatically goes to the scene from Season One of Boardwalk Empire when the patrons at the nightclub are counting down until when the Amendment goes  into effect much like counting down until midnight on New Year’s Eve. What an interesting 13 years it must have been for those that opposed and those that were for alcohol. It most likely was a big reason the 1920s were dubbed the  “Roaring Twenties.” A great documentary to watch on Prohibition is Ken Burns’ Prohibition, http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/prohibition/. The documentary goes back to the roots of what started the snowball that turned into the avalanche named Prohibition. (Psst, it’s available on Netflix too!)

So let’s raise a glass to Repeal Day’s 80th anniversary!
