As Straight No Chaser sings … who spiked the eggnog?
Think you drink more during the winter?
A study out of the University of Pittsburgh says you do.
Colder climates apparently contribute to a higher occurrence of binge drinking and liver disease, Elle magazine reported, citing the study.
That warm and toasty feeling you get after throwing back a few drinks relaxes the blood vessels and increases the flow of warm blood to the skin.
And because of that, people tend to want to drink more alcohol in the winter.
Of course, it might also be due to the fact that we tend to be around family more during the holidays. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
