Days until Christmas: 53

DID YOU KNOW

egg nog caused a riot?

Christmas 1826 at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, was not a peaceful one. It started with a party, fueled by eggnog spiked with whiskey that cadets smuggled into the academy. It ended with broken windows, gunshots, one knocked-out lieutenant and lots of damaged property. Twenty cadets were court-martialed, and the event was thereafter known as the Eggnog Riot.
