‘National Michigan Day’ today, Jan. 18, 2020


Today is National Michigan Day.

So, what does that mean? And how should you celebrate?

National state days begun being celebrated in each state in 2017 by the National Day Calendar.

The way National state days work is like this: each state is celebrated in the order it entered the union, beginning with the week of Independence Day and ending with Hawaii.

When it’s your state’s day, the day is supposed to be celebrated by taking part in the history of the state, its local food and the people.

So, how should we celebrate National Michigan Day?

According to National Day Calendar, you can visit a Michigan State or National Park and Historic site, an arts and science center or a recreation area to appreciate what the state has to offer.
