Why do people smoke cigars at graduation?

If you’ve ever experienced a graduation ceremony, you may have noticed recent grads sparking up cigars at graduation. Cigar smoking at graduations originated from Native Americans traditions, as smoking for the celebration of life-changing events has historically been commonplace in Native American cultures.

Cigars are often smoked to celebrate marriage, birth, death, and the elevation of social rank. After years of hard work, graduates will light up a cigar to celebrate receiving their diploma.

Whether you’ve completed your undergrad degree, an MBA, or medical or law school, lighting a good cigar is one of the best ways to relish a significant accomplishment. At Casa de Montecristo, we have chosen some of the best cigars available to celebrate with.
