Wonderful Weirdos Day!

Today we celebrate a day for those wonderful weird people or events because it is  Wonderful Weirdos Day.  This day is observed annually for fun on September 9th.

Every person can be different, strange, weird and still be wonderful and awesome to be a part of your life.  It is fun to have friends who we think are weird because it adds some spice to your friendship.  Being normal is sometimes boring and average, so it is fun to be weird and give some laughter to others as long as you are not being bullied just because you are weird.

A person can identify to be weird when you like something or eat something different unlike others do.  Maybe you are a person who dresses differently, or you do a lot of weird stuff or eat foods differently.  I have been called weird because I put Ketchup of my fried eggs and Mac and Cheese.  Do you think it is weird to have your pictures taken with a bunch of Clowns?  Well, I did and yet I am scared of clowns, weird!

So, if you been called weird or know anyone who is weird, encourage them to celebrate this day and just be weird for a day and have fun.  Share on social media some photos of how you been weird using #WonderfulWeirdDay.

1776 Congress renames the nation “United States of America”

On September 9, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declares the name of the new nation to be the “United States” of America. This replaced the term “United Colonies,” which had been in general use.

In the Congressional declaration dated September 9, 1776, the delegates wrote, “That in all continental commissions, and other instruments, where, heretofore, the words ‘United Colonies’ have been used, the stile be altered for the future to the “United States.”

A resolution by Richard Henry Lee, which had been presented to Congress on June 7 and approved on July 2, 1776, issued the resolve, “That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States….” As a result, John Adams thought July 2 would be celebrated as “the most memorable epoch in the history of America.” Instead, the day has been largely forgotten in favor of July 4, when Jefferson’s edited Declaration of Independence was adopted. That document also states, “That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES.” However, Lee began with the line, while Jefferson saved it for the middle of his closing paragraph.
