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

Throughout Canada and the United States, eggnog is traditionally consumed over Christmas season every year, from late November until the end of the holiday season.

National Eggnog Day is observed each year on December 24th, otherwise known as Christmas Eve.

There are many debates over where the drink originated. Some say England and some say medieval Europe. Either way, it remains a classic holiday drink.

Eggnog is a dairy-based beverage that is traditionally made with milk and cream, sugar, whipped eggs, and spices. It is normally sweetened and can be served with liquor added to the eggnog.

Rum tends to be the most popular alcoholic addition to eggnog, however many people prefer other liquors like brandy, whiskey, bourbon, or vodka.

Some people may like it for the many ways to make it, or maybe just for the holiday tradition and nostalgia.

Apparently George Washington famously put 12 eggs in his recipe (a traditional recipe usually only calls for 6).

According to Nielsen data provided by the American Egg Board, Americans have spent $185 million on eggnog (53.5 million bottles) at retail between 2018 and 2019. There is no data on spending from 2020, most likely due to the pandemic.
