Thanksgiving-Eve big night for underage drinking

By  | 

It turns out prom and graduation season isn't as popular for underage drinking as once thought.

A new study shows the highest amount of underage drinking goes on the night before Thanksgiving.

The Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center did the study. It says Thanksgiving Eve is a big night for under-agers because older siblings and college age friends are home for the holidays and refrigerators are stocked for family parties.

It also says some adult role models combine alcohol use with hunting season. The coalition is reminding people to monitor the alcohol in their house over the holiday season.
