It's that time of year again. You know, the time of year when everyone's social schedule goes insane with engagements to celebrate the debatable birth date of some dude who changed history 2000 years ago?

In New Zealand, almost all social events involve alcohol.

This post does not apply to my friends who all know me and don't have these kinds of issues with my non-drinking.

But if you're one of those people that wonders why anyone would choose not to include alcohol as part of every social occasion, to the point where you think it's ok to press them to justify their choice, then yes, this post is aimed at you. Please don't do it. Just enjoy your beer/wine/jagerbomb and let them enjoy their water/lemonade/ginger beer, and everything will be fine.
