World Buckfast Day is happening soon and there are events for Buckfast lovers in Ireland

Know anyone that loves their Bucky?

It's not uncommon to find that various films, people and events have their own universal day of celebration. For example, May 4th is celebrated by Star Wars fans and Ed Balls' balls-up on Twitter has also become something of an event.

On this note, Buckfast drinkers will be pleased to know that the wine now has its own day and it's being celebrated this May, all over the world.

The popular drink, made by the Benedictine Monks of Buckfast Abbey, will be drunk (and ate) all over Ireland on May 12th.

Apparently, World Buckfast Day has been up and running for four years now and a dedicated Facebook page has details on all the upcoming events for Buckfast lovers.
