 Post subject: Patriot's Day
PostPosted: Mon Apr 20, '15, 10:19 pm 
Although not an official federal holiday but in some places a State Holiday, many places in the USA are celebrating Patriot's Day today. This special day is usually held sometime in the month of April. The day is meant to honor and celebrate battles and events that occurred in 1775. To find out more about Patriot's Day look at these links below:

Awesome day and way to remember and celebrate a historic time in the history of the United States Of America. :usa:

And, remember that this day of "Patriot's Day" is not to be confused with the similarly named "Patriot Day" that is celebrated on September 11 regarding the events that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Patriot's Day is Marathon Day in Boston. Not the best day for it, considering rain and temps in the 40s. But it went on well, and of course, given 2 years ago, the Marathon takes on new significance.

I do wish the city would plan for it better. Transit agencies do not provide very good information on rerouting buses around the Marathon route. There seems to be an assumption that no one works on Marathon Day. A flawed assumption, as many offices outside the public sector stay open (though some companies, schools and non-profits do close). And of course, hospitals and health care offices must stay open. So people still have to get to work, and cross from one side of the Marathon route to the other. But finding decent information on how to get there is difficult.
