Arizona (February 14, 1912- )

Around the world, today, many are celebrating the Centennial of the great state of Arizona, through the tradition of giving card, chocolates, candy and flowers.

This year, is a special year, as a hundred years ago, the state graduated from the status of territory.

It has yet to yield a person to hold the office of President of the United States, but it HAS yielded a Supreme Court Justice, and our current Secretary of Homeland Security.

Why not celebrate this special occasion?
I ask, how many times can you celebrate the Centennial of a state?
My Answer, 50, and this is your 48th chance, only two more left.

  2. Thanks for posting this one. Students had fun for a week’s worth of state b-day party lessons and I enjoyed my 9 month wedding anniversary on this date too :). Hope you are well!
