The Traditional Occasions to Enjoy Cigars
The experience of enjoying good quality cigars on a memorable or special occasion cannot be beaten – and there are some milestones in your life where a cigar is a perfect way to enjoy the momentous occasion. In this guide we want to highlight some milestones were lighting up a cigar to celebrate would add to the overall experience.
A New-Born Baby
Even in this modern era, many people will consider smoking a cigar synonymous with the arrival of a new child. According to old traditions, it is customary for the new father to buy cigars for his family members in order to mark the special occasion and to enjoy smoking together. Whilst this tradition has taken a slight dive in popularity in recent years, it is still considered to be a terrific bonding exercise between a new father and his own – the smoking usually coincides with receiving welcome advice about raising a child.
A high-quality cigar feels almost like a mandatory requirement for the big day. Gather up the best man, your father, perhaps your new father-in-law and the groomsmen and retire from the busy wedding party to enjoy a calming smoke. A perfect memory that will last a lifetime.
Everyone loves celebrating their birthday, get in some good drinks, company and a few fine cigars and you’ve got the recipe for birthday success. Even if you’re not happy about the getting older part, you can still use your birthday as a special occasion for smoking a truly exquisite cigar (a present from you to you!).
There’s no better excuse for lighting up a couple of great cigars than hitting a milestone in your career. After all the hard work you’ve put in, you should be congratulating yourself in style with a box of your favourite cigars.
Christmas, Boxing Day & New Year’s Eve
Keep the festivities going with a cigar (or two), pair with some good whiskey, maybe even a roaring open fire and relax. New Year’s Eve is also a perfect occasion to light up a cigar, and time it for the inevitable fireworks display and commemorate the big milestone in style.
Cigars can be enjoyed in many different locations, so why not smoke your favourite against a stunning backdrop? While you’re on a road trip to an unfamiliar destination, stop off along the way and take in the view as well as a high-quality cigar.
