    Did you know...

    ... that today is National Anthem Day? In 1931, the Star Spangled Banner, written by Francis Scott Key, was adopted as the American national anthem. The song was originally a poem known as Defense of Fort McHenry.

    Is this just U.S. National Anthem Day or National Anthem Day for anthems of all countries that have them?

    Despite the fact that a Canadian posted this, I am guessing it is just National Anthem Day for the US, given the significance of its date to us.
