Why We Celebrate With Cigars

It seems all life's greatest moments are celebrated with a fine cigar. Sports victories, business deals, and even new babies are celebrated by enjoying a rich and aromatic cigar. But why?

Ancient Mayans and Cubans are the first known sources of tobacco cigars. Once Columbus and his crew landed in the Americas, Europeans quickly began to partake as well. The trouble was that it was relatively expensive to procure. The Cubans had refined their growing and harvesting process and their product was highly sought after, but they could only produce a limited supply each year.

Cigars became known as a symbol of affluence. Often worth more than the currency of the land. If you had one, most often it was saved for something special. Parting with a cigar was an expression of joy and gratitude. Around the end of the 17th century, the birth of a child, specifically a boy who would carry the family name forth, was an experience that men began to bond over with shared cigars.

Sharing a cigar at the birth of a child soon leaked into other parts of life. Weddings, promotions, holidays, and sports victories are all regular occasions to whip out the stash of fine cigars today. You can even buy cigars online specifically for any given celebratory situation. Enjoy cigars with pink or blue bands to commemorate a birth. Some connoisseurs even design specific mixes to celebrate birthdays and other special events.

Cigars are still smoked in celebration of positive events and to bond, but more often these days smokers just partake to unwind, relax, and socialize. People today are interested in making even the smallest moment a special occasion. No matter if your celebratory cigar is for a new baby or just a new day, enjoy it to the fullest. You deserve it.
