#300: We celebrate Emancipation Day.
In the US only Florida, Mississippi (I know, I was surprised too), Texas, Kentucky, the US Virgin Islands and DC celebrate Emancipation Day. Everyone celebrates the emancipation on slaves on a different day. DC for some reason picked April 16.
While I am happy that we celebrate this very, very important development, it is also very, very hard to remember that we do and when it is.
