Constitution Day: A Time to Be Proud of Our Citizenship
September 17 marks a special event for all Americans. It’s that day in 1787 when our very own Constitution was signed and adopted by the delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. That’s right, it’s Constitution Day!
Also referred to as Citizenship Day, this national observance reminds every American to recognize the importance of the nation’s Constitution and the responsibilities of all citizens. It also serves as an occasion for us to express how proud we are to be born in the Land of Opportunity.
To celebrate this annual event, the U.S. president may issue a proclamation calling on government officials to display the country’s flag on government buildings. People would also be invited to observe the event in schools, churches, or other suitable places. These establishments are likely to display the U.S. flag to commemorate the event.
Various activities and programs are held every year, with the Center for Civic Education and the U.S. Department of Education providing students a range of topics about the observance.
If the event falls on a weekend or another holiday, Constitution Day is moved to a weekday, either during the previous or following week.
Simple Ways to Take Part and Show Your Patriotism
There are tons of ways to get involved on Constitution Day – from reading about our nation’s history and the significant figures that shaped our nation to posting and sharing information about this online,
Simply letting the whole world know that you’re a proud American citizen can be a great way to celebrate the occasion. For emphasis, you can post a picture of yourself in a red, white, and blue get-up!
