As a friendly reminder, if you want to enjoy a cocktail or stiff drink on Christmas or New Year's Day, you'll need to buy your liquor in advance.

Texas state law prohibits the sale of liquor on those two holidays, as well as Thanksgiving.

The Dallas Morning News also reports that if New Year's Day or Christmas falls on a Sunday, when liquor sales are already prohibited, they're also banned the following Monday.

The Christmas Day ban was added by legislators in 1967, while Thanksgiving and New Year's Day were added in 1979.

In case you're wondering, the Sunday rule was put into place by the state in 1935 after the repeal of Prohibition.
