April 19, 2020 – National Hanging Out Day | North Dakota Day
Transcript for April 19th
Welcome to April 19th, 2020 as we bridge the social distance on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate hanging around in our own backyard. More after the break from Anna Devere.
Housework is tedious, but nothing more so than the dreaded task of doing the laundry. Just when you’ve finished folding a batch, another dirty pile of stained shirts and stinky socks seems to appear out of nowhere. Chances are that you’ve probably got a hamper full of clothes waiting for you even as we speak. It’s not only annoying, it can also be expensive: Dryers account for around 10% of monthly energy bills. Yay laundry! Celebrate by doing something different today on National Hanging Out Day: hang your clean laundry on a clothesline. It may not make the task any more fun but you’ll get some fresh air and you’ll save yourself some cash too!
We don’t typically call out days celebrating individual states, but we’re making an exception today because it’s North Dakota Day—my home state and the birthplace of the National Day Calendar. It is known as the Peace Garden State and is a wonderland for people who love the outdoors. But here’s an interesting fact about North Dakota that you may not know, Anna. It was not officially a state until 2011. Technically, it was granted statehood in 1889, but there was an error in the state constitution that no one noticed for over 100 years. But now it’s fixed. So don’t worry, my fellow North Dakotans, we’re still in the club.
