Have you ever wondered what makes happy hour so happy? Like many drinking-related traditions in our culture, the history of happy hour stems from the Roaring Twenties, when Prohibition was the law of the land but not the way of the people. This term, "happy hour" was borrowed from old Navy slang that referred to scheduled activities.
After Prohibition ended, it was no longer necessary to talk about drinking using obscure euphemisms, but like many 1920s terms, "happy hour" stuck around: Somewhere around the 1950s "happy hour" started being used to describe the drinking one generally did to unwind right after work. These days, the idea of happy hour has been expanded to include discounts on both drinks and appetizers, as well as a second "happy hour," generally late in the evening before close.
