The most important holiday of the year is just about here. That’s right, we’re talking about National Margarita Day, which is on Thursday, February 22. We don’t know about you, but we think this classic combination of tequila, triple sec, and lime should be celebrated to the fullest, even if it lands on a weeknight!

Here are 7 perfectly good reasons why you should make it a point to celebrate National Margarita Day this year:

Tequila Has Many Health Benefits – Tequila, one of the main ingredients in margaritas, can be good for your health! It can boost your metabolism and help your body absorb calcium better. Oh, and it also makes for a great pain remedy!

They Can Lower Blood Sugar – Tequila is made from the agave plant, which is a source of natural-occurring sugar called agavina. This sugar activates insulin production in the body, resulting in lower blood sugar!

They’re Perfect with Tacos, Guac, and Chips – Let’s face it, any time is a good time to enjoy chips, guac, and tasty tacos. Why not make it complete and indulge with a refreshing margarita? We know you want to anyway!

They Can Keep You From Getting Sick – We’re still in the cold and flu season, and it’s been pretty brutal this year. Long ago in the 1930s, doctors in Mexico would often promote this awfully familiar concoction for people to fight off those nasty colds and flu viruses: .5 ounces of tequila, .5 ounces of agave nectar, and .5 ounces of fresh lime juice. Boost your immune system – enjoy a margarita!

It’s Almost the Weekend – Look, by the time Thursday rolls around, we’re all ready for the weekend to get here. Give yourself a break and celebrate the weekend a little early. Besides, what else are you gonna do on a boring weeknight?!

It’s the Perfect Way to Relax – Is there a better way to take a load off and chill out than by sipping on a delicious margarita with your BFFs? We think not!

You’ll Make Great Memories (and Make Others Jealous) – You deserve to have some fun. Grab your friends and have some good laughs over a few margaritas. Take some selfies and post them online to give your Insta or Facebook feed some life. Trust us, everyone will wish they were you!
