Out of the Blue

Happy Towel Day, one of several designations for this date. For instance, today is apparently "National Wine Day" in the US. I get that these "special occasions" are usually just marketing or other fluff, but this still strikes me as unnecessary. There are shops with supplies of novelty glasses, aprons, and signs with declarations like "It's Wine O'Clock Somewhere" or endless quotes about wine's essential role in raising children. It seems pretty safe to think wine lovers view every day as National Wine Day. Now where did I leave my corkscrew?
