About National Hangover Day

When is National Hangover Day? This holiday is always observed on January 1

It’s ingrained in our culture, to bring in the New Year with a whole lot of optimism, anticipation, and alcohol. Millions of us partied last night, and we partied very hard. For many of us, the biggest drinking night of the year is followed by the biggest hangover of the year. For this very reason, National Hangover Day is the day after the biggest part yo of te year.

Fortunately, most of us have the day off, so we can nurse our hangovers by sleeping, in, taking aspirin, and tomato juice, and perhaps “a little bit of the dog that bit us”!

Normally, we think of ways to “celebrate” special days. For this special day, the goal is to just get through it.  

Other Names: This special day is also called “Bad Hangover Day”

History and Origin of National Hangover Day

Our research in the early 2000s did not identify the creator of this day, or when it began.  A second research effort in the early 2020s did not uncover any information about this holiday either. However, it is easily understandable why this holiday was created on January 1.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a “National” day, which requires an act of congress. and/or a presidential proclamation. We suspect that the government, along with the rest of the general population, was too hung over to address the issue of making this a national day.
