National Booch Day

When you first hear about the holiday National Booch Day—a holiday that’s observed on January 15th each year—you might not have the faintest idea what it’s about. After all, what exactly is “booch”? However, once you realize that “booch” is a shortened name for kombucha, then it all begins to make sense.

This holiday is actually National Kombucha Day, a day that encourages everyone to drink this lightly effervescent black or green tea that’s packed with a ton of health benefits. So let’s all come together and lift our glasses of kombucha high for this special day of the year.

The History of National Booch Day

National Booch Day was created by KeVita—a company that makes a variety of probiotic and prebiotic drinks, including kombucha. KeVita was founded in Ojai, California, in 2009 and has been making high-quality drinks ever since. They created this holiday on January 15, 2019, to raise the public profile of kombucha and their own product line.
