When Germany surrendered after WWII, people in Russia celebrated long enough that they ran out of Vodka!
It's one of the landmarks events in modern history. Germany surrendering sparked massive celebrations around the world, including one in Times Square where they took the now famous picture of the sailor kissing a nurse. However, none may have been as wild as the one in Moscow.
Reports say thousands of people took the streets, and turned the city into a sea of vodka. They say that by the time Stalin addressed the nation 22 hours later, the entire city had been drunk dry!
A reporter said "he was lucky to buy a liter of vodka at the train station, because later it was impossible to buy one." Check out the source for that and other awesome parties in history.
