Several States in the U.S. Celebrate an Independence Day or Statehood Day when the state became independent from another country and/or joined the Union and became part of the U.S.
Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day commemorates the Pearl Harbor attack in Hawaii in 1941 during World War II. It honors survivors and remembers those who lost their lives on that day. All government buildings are required to fly their flag at half-mast in remembrance. Some memorial services and events are held on this day each year. Children are often taught about the attacks on Pearl Harbor in school.
