Get a free Slurpee just for reading this post!

For those of you who did not know, today is National Slurpee Day (aka 7-Eleven Day). (Don't get it? Look at a calendar.) And in honor of Slurpee Day, 7-Eleven is giving away 5 million free 7.11-ounce Slurpee drinks to celebrate its 82nd birthday. (Btw, click the"7-Eleven Day" link to find out where you can get a free Slurpee and other fabulous prizes! But act now! Supplies are limited and this is a one-day only event!)

For those of you unfamiliar with the Slurpee, the slushy frozen carbonated drink introduced by 7-Eleven in 1967, here are some fun Slurpee facts:

* Slurpee drinks are all served at 28 degrees.

* Half of all Slurpee drinks are purchased between the hours of 4 and 11 p.m.

* Every day more than 11.6 million Slurpee drinks are consumed around the world.

* More than 40% of all Slurpee drinks are sold during the months of June, July and August.

Pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth is a known cure for brain freeze.

* Every year enough Slurpee drinks are sold to fill up 12 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

* Drinking a Slurpee can make you an awesome dancer.

You can learn more about the Slurpee over at Slurpee Nation.
