MARCH 3RD, 2013 – NATIONAL ANTHEM DAY – NATIONAL I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY DAY – NATIONAL COLD CUTS DAY – NATIONAL MULLED WINE DAY

2 Mar

NATIONAL ANTHEM DAY

Written by Francis Scott Key, the Star Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America.  On National Anthem Day, we celebrate and honor this song.  The Star Spangled Banner became  our national anthem, officially, on March 3rd, 1931.

The Star Spangled Banner was written during the War of 1812.   After watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry from a ship,  the next morning seeing the American flag still flying over the Fort, Francis Scott Key was inspired that on September 14, 1814, he wrote what is now our national anthem.

ENJOY YOUR DAY!
