Summary
One of the most patriotic holidays, today celebrates both the constitution and citizens of the USA.

On February 29th 1952, Congress designated September 17th as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution that day in 1787 and recognize all American citizens.

Constitution Day And Citizenship Day are celebrated across the United States in order to commemorate the honor of creation and adoption of the constitution of the United States. The day is a celebration to all those who are the citizens of the US either by their birth or naturalization.

The day is also known as the Citizenship day which is from old "I am an American Day". "I am an American Day" was inspired by the Arthur Pine who is ahead of the publicity public relations from the firm in New York City who bears his name. Pine has got the idea for a day from the song of the title "I am an American" which was featured in New York World’s Fair in 2019. However, in the year 1949, all of those 48 states had issued Constitution Day proclamations but on 29th February 1952. Congress moved that "I am American Day" as an official day of observance on 17th September which is known as Citizenship Day.
