It's official, Museums will offer free admission and businesses will offer special deals or discounts on Colorado Day which in 2014, will fall on Friday the 1st August.
Colorado day is an annual observance commemorating the state's birthday, on the 1st August 1876. Because it is a state observance and not a gazetted public holiday, most businesses, public offices, schools and colleges stay open, unless the birthday falls on a Saturday or Sunday
President Ulysses S Grant signed a proclamation on the 1st August 1876, admitting Colorado as a state. It was celebrated for many years as a State holiday and then moved to the first Monday of August. This most likely occurred after the United States Congress signed the Uniform Holidays Bill in 1968. Thereafter, the day ceased to be a public holiday, instead being recognised as an observance day.
Statistics show that gift cards are the most popular way to recognise an Observance day or State holiday with nearly 70% of people sharing them. Homemade gifts are also becoming popular at 47.6 %. However, given the rise of Amazon with online retailing, it is interesting to see the increase in household goods being gifted on observance days like Colorado Day.
This could be time for residents of Colorado to get a bit creative if intending to give a gift on Colorado Day
The Ali Jane Pineapple Corer Package as a household gift pack could almost be the equivalent of a gift basket, with a pineapple corer, wedger and cocktail booklet all packaged up in a specially designed gift box. That could make a gift for Colorado Day that is a little different this year.
