    We flew SWA on Christmas Day and I forgot the alcoholic drinks were free that day because of the holiday. On the flight home on 12/29, I had too many coupons and they all would expire 12/31. As we exited the plane I saw a young couple waiting at the gate and asked if they wanted two free coupons. They jumped at it.

    Here is where the karma comes in. The guy behind me says "I don't drink and I'm always giving them away and I'm glad to see others do also". He whips open his carry on, and hands me 8 coupons. 4 expire in March and 4 expire in Oct. We travel again in Feb and April, so it was perfect. :beer:

    We also flew on Christmas day but used 2 of our last 4 coupons. We never heard that Christmas has free drinks served on SWA....but the flight was only 40 minutes so we really couldn't use anymore if we wanted. Same for the flight back home.

    Is this always true that SWA serves free drinks on Christmas ? ? ?

    The major US Holidays. Thanksgiving & Christmas for sure and July 4th. They are all listed in the seatback flyer that shows the drink list. I think it lists them by quarters of the year.
