Have You Ever Celebrated National New Jersey Day?
Ever wonder why there seems to be a holiday for every single thing under the sun? I'm not joking, either. There's National Lazy Day, National Avocado Day, National Drink Wine Day, National Love Your Dog Day, the list goes on and on.
Did you know there's even a National New Jersey Day??
If not, don't worry. I was today-years-old when I found out that there's an entire day set aside for celebrating the Garden State. Why do more NJ residents not know about this?
Let's get real for a second, okay? It's not exactly like Jersey is always painted in the best light. The rest of the country loves to call us "the armpit of America", so it's not exactly like we're stacking up compliments all year long.
That's fine, though. Those of us that knew Jersey know how awesome it is to live here.
So, when is National New Jersey Day? Well, you've got some time to plan for it. Apparently, New Jersey Day falls on July 27th every year. Technically, the day that Jersey decided to become the third state to join the union was actually in December of 1787, but there's just no beating Jersey summers, so it really is the best time to celebrate. Really though, the folks over at National Day Calendar started celebrating each state in the order they joined the union back in 2017 starting during the week of July 4th, Independence Day.
Obviously, we've got some time to wait out before July 2022 rolls around, so you should have plenty of time to plan out your New Jersey-themed celebration.
In the meantime, did you know that you can create a national holiday for almost anything you want?
