Sam Adams creator wants National Patriotís Day!
 
Something interesting!

Sam Adams creator wants National Patriot’s Day - BostonHerald.com

The founder of a beer named after an American Revolutionary hero is pushing for Patriotís Day to become a national holiday.

Jim Koch, founder and owner of the Boston Beer Co., the maker of Sam Adams, says he is launching a personal campaign and starting a petition to begin a movement for the national holiday.

Koch said if Patriotís Day was a national holiday, more Americans would understand the nationís "revolutionary spirit" and how much the Founder Fathers risked their lives.

He said Patriotís Day would be a reminder about the creation of a modern democracy.

Patriots Day is a Massachusetts holiday that honors the first military battles of the Revolutionary War in Lexington and Concord.

Think it would be great, and maybee the kids would learn a little more about all the patriots that made us what we are.

I checked out the Samuel Adams brew site, no news on a petition.

I want to sign the petition!
