Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always enjoyed on September 17
Citizenship Day celebrates being a citizen of the United States of America, the greatest country the world has ever seen. Our great country (and it's people ....you!) is something every American should be proud of. America is filled with outstanding citizens, many of whom have played a direct or indirect role in making this country and what it stands for, a beacon of hope, promise and success!
This special day is for all citizens, both native born, and those who chose to become Americans. It is a day to be proud to be an American. It is a day to appreciate being a citizen of this country and the rights and freedoms it brings. We suggest American citizens never take for granted the rights, freedoms, and privileges afforded us, as citizens of the United States of America.
We suggest today, and every day, you express your citizenship in some way. It's the sum of all of the actions and deeds by famous and "ordinary" citizens, that makes this country so great.
To each and every American citizen, we wish you a very Happy Citizenship Day!
Origin of Citizenship Day:
On February 29, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill establishing Citizenship Day on September 17 of each year. The roots of this holiday go back to I Am an American Day, which was established in 1940 by Congress as the third Sunday in May. This day was moved and renamed to Citizenship Day to coincide with the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.
