Happy Hour Meaning
The tradition of a happy hour can be traced back to the early 20th century, when it was a slang term used by sailors in the United States Navy (USN). The phrase signaled a scheduled time for entertainment and recreation onboard ships.
As time went on, the concept of happy hour moved from ships to shoreline, evolving into a pre-dinner period where drinks are offered at reduced prices in bars and restaurants. It attracts a great crowd and fosters a cheerful environment before the evening unfolds.
Why Is Happy Hour So Popular?
Happy hour has become a symbol of relaxation after a long day. It’s a time to unwind, enjoy good company, and savor tasty food and drinks at great prices. The attraction of a good discount, lively ambiance, and the promise of a good time draws individuals from all walks of life into restaurants and bars for a well-earned break.
When Is Happy Hour?
