Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Drinking Straw Day

As you would expect from the name, straws from grasses were first used to suck up drinks. The oldest example found so far dates back over 5,000 years to Sumeria.

The first artificial drinking straw was patented on January 3rd 1888.

Of course, it is now more common that we have gone back to natural straws instead of plastic, and having this observance so early in the year is a good reminder that not using plastic drinking straws is an easy New Year's Resolutions that you can probably keep.
