Flag Day

14 Jun

20130614-081148.jpg

Momma said today is Flag Day. Do you know what that means? She explained it to me. Flag Day is celebrated in the United States on June 14th. It commemorates (isn’t that a long word!) the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

Do you know which president of the United States proclaimed June 14th as the official Flag Day? It was President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. In August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. But on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale.

    For a German it sounds weird that you celebrate a flag. The flag is just a symbol of your country. It is a little bit like celebrating Easter Eggs instead of the sacrifice God made … Oh, wait … *feels cheeks getting red when she thinks of the amount of chocolate EGGS she has eaten*

      It represents freedom for our country and all of the people that sacrificed for that freedom. We hold it in high respects. XOXO – Bacon

        Not saying you should disrespect your flag, far from that! Just saying that to have a special day to celebrate the flag is something my German mind finds hard to grasp.

      No barbeque today – although someone did invite me over for a bbq as the main guest of honor. I politely declined for obvious reasons – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
