Friday the country observes Constitution Day, which marks the anniversary of the document's signing (it was actually signed on September 17, 1787, but is observed on September 16 this year because the 17th is a Saturday). Along with passing the holiday, Congress mandated that public schools educate their students about the constitution on this day. In the past, schools have celebrated Constitution Day with trivia contests, Constitution readings, and t-shirt giveaways. There are a number of website devoted to activities for teachers, parents, and Constitution enthusiasts to do on the holiday. The National Archives in Washington, D.C. and the Constitution Center in Philadelphia have special events planned for the day as well.
