Did you know? June 14th is FLAG DAY.
Whether your home, or office, vehicle or place of business, be sure to sport your Patriotism this weekend.
If you don’t have a flag, try the Dollar Store at the least. But don’t delay. Now is the time to locate that flag and fly it. Maybe you have one that you hang out in front of your home, or, perhaps you prefer one in your window. Even one of those table top stands that lets you set a mini flag on your kitchen or dining room table or your desk at work. Anything will do.
Where did this special day come from?
President Woodrow Wilson (in 1916) issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. But it wasn’t until August 1949 (a few years after WWII) that National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.
Flag Day is not actually an official federal holiday. Pennsylvania, however, made it a state holiday. (Good for them! ) Flag Day used to include parades and festivities. The real question is, how will you celebrate it this year? My dining room table will be decorated, the door will have something too, and I think I’ll stick some flags in the grass again, just for old times sake.
Just my thoughts.
