Tomorrow is 7/11. That's right, you know the drill. It's Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven locations.

Hallmark might not sell Slurpee Day greeting cards (yet), nor is the holiday pre-labeled on your kitten-themed calendar, but it goes without saying that America has come to embrace the day of free frozen slush as a sacred ritual.

Visit participating 7-Eleven stores between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on July 11 and you'll score a free 7.11-ounce Slurpee. They say that most of life is just showing up, and in this case it's true — that's all it takes to get your free beverage.

If you aren't up for the blue raspberry, cherry or Classic Coke varieties, you can always try Fanta-flavored “Slurpee Lite,” the Slurpee of choice for those watching their figures. With a record heatwave currently rolling across the United States, most Slurpee analysts expect tomorrow's lines to be on par with those during the 1973 oil embargo, so make sure to camp out early if you want to get your sugar fix.
