Regardless of the original purpose of these holidays, we can all agree that, for many people, St. Patrick's Day, New Year's Eve, and, to an extent, Halloweén are about going out and drinking copious amounts of inebriating liquid with one's friends Your job is to create a holiday that is, or has evolved to be, about inebriation! You needn't use alcohol, the celebrators may use a gaseous or solid thing to consume to become inebriate, or you could avoid substances altogether and have it be a spiritual, magical, or physical activity which leads to this state. The holiday can be solemn, boisterous, silly or competitive; it's up to you! Remember also that people become inebriated for different reasons; people drink to loosen up, to get brave, to numb themselves, to forget things, to get in touch with a spiritual side, or even just to bond with their companions.
