Constitution Day and Citizenship Day Celebration
On September 17, the citizens of the United States celebrate two holidays: Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. The first one is aimed at recognizing how incredibly important for the American nation the signing of the U.S. Constitution, which happened on September 17, 1787, was. The second observance was established to celebrate American citizenship and to recognize the efforts of those people who want to become American citizens. So, how do people in the United States celebrate these holidays?
Taking into consideration the fact that both holidays have been recognized nationally rather recently, there are no all-national traditions connected to these holidays.
