By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.
We have to agree with him! Sunday brunch is becoming a more popular meal in restaurants then every before. Data from Google Trends show that search interest in brunch has been rising steadily since 2004 with the most popular searches coming around Easter and Mother’s Day. According to that same research, brunch tends to be more popular with younger urban dwellers.
Brunch also gets credit for popularizing day drinking. The creation of the Bloody Mary and Mimosa are attributed to the social events of the 1920’s during Prohibition, when those who still had access to alcohol often mixed it with juice to hide the fact that it hadn’t been aged for long. Nothing say brunch better that bottomless mimosa’s.
