As snow blankets the country and the winter chill overwhelms, Jose Cuervo is trying to find a little gratitude in the world. While a margarita might not be the solution to every problem, it can bring a smile to your day. Are you ready to say thank you to Todd?

Now, if you are wondering who is Todd, you might not be alone. Although, your brother might be Todd or maybe your best friend is Todd. While those Todds are probably great guys, Jose Cuervo is thanking one specific Todd, Todd McCalla from Ohio.

If that name doesn’t ring a bell, that is ok. But, you might know that February 22 is National Margarita Day. And, we hall have Todd McCalla to thank for that food holiday.

How is Jose Cuervo celebrating National Margarita Day?

National Margarita Day started because Todd McCalla wanted to drink margaritas with his friends during the winter. Since not everyone can jump a plane to Cancun in the middle of a snowstorm, Todd created an excuse to drink margaritas with his friends. No plane ticket or sand in your shoes required.

In honor of Todd’s crowning achievement, Jose Cuervo created this special thank you. And, for anyone who would like to join the celebration can share their thanks to Todd on socials. And, that word of thanks could get you $8 via PayPal from the popular tequila brand. Why $8? It is the average price of a margarita.

Now the Jose Cuervo promotion is fun and Todd deserves a world of credit for the margarita holiday. But, it begs the question. If one man could create such a popular food holiday, what other food holidays need special recognition?

Anyone in the food world appreciates that almost every day has a food associated with it. From margaritas to tequila to even guacamole, there is a reason to have a special food on a specific day.

Still, wouldn’t you want to be infamous for creating the next great food holiday? Of course, the idea has to be creative. It also has to be a food or beverage that people love. Sorry, prune juice, but you might not rise to margarita day popularity.
