If this is your birthday, congratulations!

It's National Anthem Day!
The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America. Written by Francis Scott Key on September 14, 1814, the song officially became our national anthem on March 3, 1931, by proclamation of congress.
A great way to celebrate this day is to proudly fly our flag and listen to and sing the song.
