Today is International Cigar Smoking Day

On Thursday, May 31, cigar smokers around the world will take a stand against prohibition and celebrate the first International Enjoy a Cigar Day.

The holiday proclaimed by Cigar Rights of Europe and Cigar Rights of America does not coincidentally fall on World No Tobacco Day. It is important to highlight cigars as a cultural asset, which as a luxury and indulgence product cannot be legally equated with cigarettes. For the freedom of choice for responsible adults, the freedom of lounge and business owners to set their own rules, and for countless people who are connected to cigar culture through shared smoking experiences, employment and charitable projects! More about the background of International Enjoy a Cigar Day.

Today the industry is calling upon cigar smokers to not only celebrate this holiday at home, but to also show their colors in lounges, at happenings nearby or in public places, and to celebrate cigar culture!

Wherever you smoke your cigars on Thursday: share your photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #EnjoyACigarDay and celebrate May 31 with cigar lovers of all nationalities.
