Constitution Day

Constitution DayConstitution Day is a public holiday to honor the constitution of a country. This Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the signing or adoption of the constitution.

United States:
On September 17, 1787, forty-two of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting, to sign the Constitution of the United States of America.

Since May 25, 1787, the 55 delegates had gathered almost daily in the State House in Philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation. By the middle of June, it became apparent to the delegates that to merely amend the Articles of Confederation would not be sufficient.

Instead, they would write an entirely new document designed to clearly define and separate the powers of the central government, the powers of the states, the rights of the people and how the representatives of the people should be elected.

After being signed in September of 1787, Congress sent printed copies of the Constitution to the state legislatures for ratification. By June 21, 1788, nine states had approved the Constitution, finally forming "a more perfect Union".

Constitution Day recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. The U.S. Constitution was signed by thirty-nine brave men who changed the course of history.

It is commonly called as Citizenship Day. It is observed on September 17, but not a Public Holiday.

Australia:
When Queen Victoria gave royal assent to the Australian Constitution on 9 July 1900 making it law, the Australian nation was born. Each year, the National Archives celebrates Constitution Day on 9 July.

The Australian Constitution is the single most important document in Australia's history. It outlines the powers of Australia's federal and state governments, the court system, the frequency of elections, who can vote and stand for Parliament, and many other things affecting the day-to-day lives of Australians.

Its creation was a remarkably inclusive and democratic process. It was drafted in the 1890s by the six then self-governing colonies of Great Britain that came together to form a nation: New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania.

The colonial people subsequently voted to ratify it, and the British Parliament passed an Act to legislate it.
