Not an official holiday, but a day in the US to celebrate the signing by the founding fathers of the Constitution document on September 17, 1787.

Interesting site above with many facts about The Constitution and the men who signed it, along with some fun games, etc., including, "Which Founding Father Are You"

http://www.constitutioncenter.org/FoundersQuiz/

Ha, I took the Founding Father quiz and it says I am most like .... James Madison from Virginia. It says he was diligent, scholarly, and shy. Well, some of that sounds right, especially the shy part, lol. I'll have to do some investigating and find out more about him. :wink:

If you take the quiz, let us know which founding father you are most like.

Now this is one that really seems like it should be a national holiday for the United States. After all, the Constitution is a hugely important part of American history and culture. I suppose that if it is not an official holiday after 222 years, it never will be one.

I tried the Founding Fathers quiz, it gave me George Mason. I've never heard of him before, but it says he refused the sign the Constitution because it lacked the Bill of Rights. I'm not sure if that's good or bad...

September 17, 2015 and time to celebrate Constitution Day once again in the United States. :usa:

And, I agree with Thoul's remarks from above that it seems this day should be an official holiday since it is celebrating such an important event.
