"Barack Obama Day" - New Holiday

Ala. county has set a new holiday, "Barack Obama Day". It will be observed on the second Monday of November. All of the county run offices will be closed and its workers will get a paid holiday. I thought it was customary for people to get holidays after they had passed on, but what do I know.

"A small central Alabama county whose mainly black residents gave Barack Obama more than 70 percent of the vote on Election Day has created an annual holiday in honor of the president-elect.

The Perry County Commission voted 4 to 1 to observe the second Monday in November as "The Barack Obama Day." County offices will close and its roughly 40 workers will get a paid holiday.
