That's funny... and odd. :D

Is it the day Nevada officially became a city or what? I mean.. I've never heard of a city having a day named after them.

I doubt many people there have the day off anyway. Too many tourists are there year-round for the city to just shut down for a day. :)

"um.....Andrew?? Nevada is a state"

LOL Yes, it is a state. But the only hip cities here are Vegas (of course) and Reno is cool, too.

And I was also wondering myself why we celebrate Nevada Day, what it means, so I went ahead and "wikipedia'd" it. LOL

Nevada Day commemorates the admission of the state of Nevada into the union on October 31, 1864. The first known observance of Nevada Day (originally known as "Admission Day") was by the Pacific Coast Pioneer society during the 1870s. It was not until 1933 that the state legislature designated October 31st as Nevada Day and a state holiday.

In 2003, the legislature decided to celebrate the holiday on a Friday hoping that a three-day weekend would generate more interest. Nevada Day is now observed on the last Friday in October.

And no, not everyone has the day off. LOL Vegas never sleeps, casinos never close. :)

That's kind of weird, to shut down everything throughout the entire state
no but seriously what is Nevada Day? I have never heard of it before until right now.
Does it have some type of significance or is it just a stupid idea?

I was just checking to see if you guys would catch that! You all passed the test! :D

For some reason I was totally thinking Las Vegas. Oh well.

dDave, read my reply above. :)

Funny that they changed it to the final Friday of the month. Typical Nevada and their "Let's bring in more tourists to Las Vegas" holidays. LOL
