Hold Still Hiccups

To celebrate our 225th anniversary, we’re looking through our archives to bring you 225 pieces of wit, wisdom, and fun in a series we’re calling Almanac Treasures (see more of them here).

To stop hiccups, take a mouthful of water and swallow it in three gulps. Repeat this three times while standing perfectly still and breathing through your nose.
