We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1.Valentine’s Day: The holiday falls on a Sunday this year to take pressure off the singles and give couples an excuse to celebrate with Netflix marathons.  Remember to make some time on the special day for the one you really love – alcohol.

2.  Long Weekend: As a gift from the calendar gods, you have an extra day to recover from the bottle of wine you’re drinking alone on Sunday night. Use the extra day to be productive by going to the store and refilling your liquor cabinet.

3. Walking Dead: The AMC hit returns to your television this weekend with more zombies and human organs. Take a drink every time you wish Carl would just die already.

4. Harry Potter: JK Rowling announced an 8th book to be released this summer. It’s called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and it’s just the excuse you need to stay indoors rereading the children’s books all summer long.

5. Kanye: With a controversial tweet Tuesday, a fashion show on Thursday and an album released today – it’s the week of Yeezy. Celebrate his holiness by gaining enough liquid courage to tweet insults to Taylor Swift.
