Ascension Day

Jesus, who died for our sins so that we may have everlasting lives, apparently rose to heaven on this day. This was in order for him to prepare a place of abode for those who will eventually go to heaven.

But the significance of this day seems to be lost to most as a good part of the population seems intent on sinning as much as possible away from heaven.

The problem with this is you are not supposed to imbibe the holy (?) waters if you are intent on going to heaven. You really cannot have much beer if you are serious about your trip to heaven. This is like willingly stuffing your head into a wood chipper.
