Summary
New Zealand has a semi national holiday called crate day where you have to drink a crate of beer on the first Saturday of December.

To celebrate the arrival of Summer, a unique New Zealand custom is to share a crate of beer on the first Saturday in December

The festivities come complete with 10 commandments, with revellers adhering to rules including 'thou shall begin at midday' and 'thou shall wear the attire of National Crate Day - singlets, stubbies and jandals'.

Many celebrate at home, but others venture to local parks or the beach for games of backyard cricket, table tennis or drinking competitions.
