Wish they’d make election day a national holiday but hey, progress.

I didn’t even know what this was when I saw it on my calendar. Awesome to learn, and awesome to know it’s starting to get official status!

The company I work for declared it a work holiday last week and I was pleasantly shocked!

Is Juneteenth the official name? Teen means “+ 10,” when that’s obviously not what they meant.
