Indulge With A Shake & Some Memes On National Chocolate Milkshake Day

Some holidays seem pointless. National Hug Your Boss Day? No thanks. Columbus Day? Boy bye. These days are either irrelevant or outdated, not standing the test of time or social acceptability. They just don’t make any sense.

But there’s one special holiday that truly resonates with all of our greatest loves in life: National Chocolate Milkshake Day, September 12.

Chocolate? Check.

Dairy? Check.

An amazing 2000s anthem? You bet your ass. Thanks, Kelis.

National Chocolate Milkshake Day is all about treating yourself and we can totally get behind anything that allows for indulgence with a fun soundtrack and an excuse to go out to eat (hi, Shake Shack. ILY!). There are also tons of fun recipe options, so you can switch it up to meet your tastes and dietary needs. Bring on the coconut milk… or throw in some vodka. There are many types of people, each with their own signature shake.

Fun fact: On National Chocolate Milkshake day you are actually legally required not only to listen to “Milkshake” all day, but you must also end every single sentence with “it’s better than yours.”

Ok, that’s not technically a fact or a legal requirement but petition coming soon, people.

Kelis was gracious enough to share her very own Baileys-infused recipe with Refinery29, so take a tip from the queen of shakes and bring all of the boys to the yard with her instructions this holiday.

If cooking isn’t quite your speed then you can always check out some relevant memes because it’s 2017 and our coping mechanisms require online validation.

Fill your GroupMe and your tummy on this holiday, one of the greatest of all.
