Flags of the Day

Today is Statehood Day in Tennessee and Kentucky, marking the date in 1796 when Tennessee became the 16th member of the American Union, and the same date in the previous year when Kentucky was admitted as the 15th state.

It is Self-Rule Day in Kenya; Navy Day in Mexico; and President's Day in Palau

Three communist countries, the Peoples Republic of China, the Loa Peoples Democratic Republic, and the Republic of Mozambique, recognize today as Childhood Day. I don't know whether or not this has anything to do with Red China's "one child" birth control policy, which results in the forced abortions or post-partem infanticide of so many children.
