We also learned that booze is a good way to introduce ourselves to our own inner workings.

Brothers and Sisters in Zen Boozeism,
Even though every day is cause for a celebration of some sort, this day, January 6th, is a little bit more so special than most.
What is so special about this January 6th you may be asking?
Firstly, it’s a day, and that’s cause enough for celebrations, as previously mentioned. Secondly, it’s a holiday, which is a day of even special-er importance than usual and which we also mentioned.
