Did you know that Sept. 11 IS a holiday called Patriot Day? Apparently, some moms didn't know it was a holiday.

not to be confused with Patriots' Day.

  • Actually Shay it's not so funny, they probably did choose it for that reason because it means emergency and they are well aware of that. Yep I knew it was called Patriot Day. I find it odd to use the term holiday tho. Holiday generally means something fun and this was beyond horrifying.

  • I well admit I didn't know. But I think its stupid to call it a holiday come on people were killed that day. Holidays as far as I know are fun exiting days.
