Ringing in the new year with a glass of champagne is a longstanding traditon

Every holiday has its own set of customs, traditions and drinking habits, and ringing in the new year with a glass of champagne is a longstanding one. In fact, drinking champagne to ring in the new year technically dates back to the 16th century, and was considered a holy drink for elite society. It was eventually marketed as a drink of aspiration, which people now use for celebratory events such as christenings and new year celebrations. Cheers!
