Douglas Jefferson day is celebrated on the first Saturday of October every year. According to tradition, there are only three rules one must follow.
1) Douglas Jefferson Day must be celebrated in a Public House of the District of Columbia, in the company of good friends
2) A gift must be given to a friend. One must not have exchanged money for the gift, and it must be “no larger than a baker’s loaf.*”
3) In the spirit of Douglas Jefferson Day, you must buy a drink for a stranger.
*According to diary entries from the time, gifts included “a half-used shaker of salt,” “one dead snail,” “a handful of grass clippings,” and “thirteen flivrums.” What a flivrum is and why anyone would need thirteen of them has been lost to time.
