Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is celebrated in the United States annually on September 17, starting in 2001, by the decision of President George W. Bush.
Historically, this day is significant because on September 17, 1787, the United States adopted the world's first Constitution, signed by delegates to the Constitutional Convention from 12 states. This is the world's first Constitution that clearly defines a person's rights and freedoms as a citizen of their country. Every year for this holiday, the U.S. Department of Education develops teaching aids for schoolchildren and students.
This day is celebrated with inspirational speeches about the rights and honorable responsibilities of every citizen. Fun fact: the word "democracy" never appears in the text of the Constitution.
