*National "Joe" Day - March 27 - Those who hate their name have the right to have everyone they know call them "Joe" on this day.
*National Anthem Day - March 3 - On this day in 1931, President Hoover signed a bill making the Star Spangled Banner our National Anthem. In case you don't know all the words...
Oh say can you see,
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad strips and bright stars,
Through the parilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there.
Oh say does that Star Spangled
Banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?
(Just in case you're wondering, I didn't have to look up the lyrics, good American that I am...but don't ask me to sing the next three verses!)
