A cigar is a great thing to have during a celebration, and there are a few events that are particularly appropriate for them. They’re a great excuse to treat yourself to a special cigar, or to hand a few out to smoke with your friends.


It used to be traditional for men to hand out cigars to their friends and coworkers when their child was born. The tradition most likely started when men were not allowed in the delivery room, and they had nothing else to do but smoke to stay calm while they waited for the birth.

That may have become less popular since men started entering the delivery room, but a birth is still a great time to celebrate with a cigar. You may not be able to do it in the hospital, but it can still be a great way to calm down after a stressful event and celebrate at the same time.

Cuban Festivals

Cuban cigars are famous for a reason, and they have become an important part of the nation’s heritage and culture. Cubans who have moved to other nations carried that culture with them, and they often celebrate it with festivals. These events are a great time to smoke cigars. They’re also a wonderful opportunity to meet with other people who have a fondness for them and to learn about the processes that make Cuban cigars stand out from the rest of the options on the market.


The Carnival season is a time of excess, revelry, and celebration. Most people who take part in it take the chance to relax and indulge in things that they would normally avoid. That makes it one of the best times to try out a rare or expensive cigar, or even just a type that you do not normally smoke. It will be an exciting change of pace, but it might also give you a new appreciation for another blend. People who would normally avoid smoking also tend to be more open to it than normal during this type of celebration, which means that you can get a rare chance to smoke with any of your friends who normally abstain.

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is a fiery holiday. People light fireworks, grill food, and spend time out in the sun. A smoldering cigar fits right in with the festivities, and the smell can blend quite pleasantly with the smell of the grill. This is also a great holiday for people who like to smoke their cigars outdoors, since they can do so without missing any of the festivities. Consider sampling American cigars to keep in theme with the holiday!
