*** Constitution & Citizenship Day *** September 17th every year

Constitution Day

Constitution and Citizenship Day is a federal holiday commemorating the ratification of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787 at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. It also recognizes those who have become U.S. citizens.

History of Constitution and Citizenship Day

In 1940, Congress and the President passed a resolution creating "I Am an American Day," observed on the third Sunday in May. In 1952, the holiday was renamed to "Constitution Day" and moved to September 17, the day in 1787 that the Constitution was signed.

Constitution Day, along with Independence Day and Presidents' Day, is an important part of the cultural heritage of the United States of America, because it recognizes the value of the American experiment, and the success of a nation of free people whose rights and liberties are protected by a written Constitution.

The U.S. Constitution

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
