National Champagne Day / Make Up Your Mind Day

National Champagne Day

December 31

Popping the Bubbly is a tradition for New Year’s Eve, so it makes sense to have this day dedicated to champagne. Yeast and sugar are added to wine in a second fermentation process which produces the bubbles. In a 750 ml bottle of Champagne, there are 49 million bubbles. The most expensive bottle of champagne sold for $2.07 million. It took 305 bottles of champagne to fill up the tub in which Marilyn Monroe took a bath. A bottle of champagne has 90 pounds of pressure per square inch when corked which is 3 times that of an average automobile tire.
