If you’re flying with Southwest today (and you’re over 21 years old), the luck of the Irish is with you. Today the carrier is giving its passengers free drinks to honor St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, passengers must be of age in order to indulge, but that’s about as far as the restrictions go.

In addition to this St. Patrick’s drink, the carrier also offers free drinks on select other holidays throughout the year. Here’s a complete list of the free drink days on Southwest’s holiday schedule:

New Year’s Day — January 1
Valentine’s Day — February 14
St. Patrick’s Day — March 17
Southwest’s Birthday — June 18
Father’s Day — June 18, 2017 (note that this is the same date as Southwest’s birthday this year)
Independence Day — July 4
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card’s Anniversary — September 20
Halloween — October 31
Thanksgiving — November 23, 2017

Happy flying today, Southwest travelers!
