National Wisconsin Day
National Wisconsin Day is a day to celebrate the wonderful state of Wisconsin. If you are not from this great state, you may not know what all there is to do on February 15th. That’s why I’m here! In this blog post, we will discuss some of the histories behind National Wisconsin Day as well as some ideas for how you can spend your time today. So grab your cheese curds and let’s get started!
Why National Wisconsin Day?
The state that held the resources of copper richly, lead, forests, and farmlands were first discovered by Jean Nicolet.
The settlers brought with them a change in the air, and dairy farms began to blossom. Later on, they grew so much that people started calling this state home for their delicious cheese!
The cows were the first to come, and they turned our fields into lush green pastureland. The taste of their milk puttered in my mouth like sweet dew on flower petals – it’s hard not be want more!
They gave life back by giving us something so important: carbohydrates from an animal protein source rather than grains- though at times I still crave bread or pasta despite knowing how good these foods can make me feel later down the line (especially after hours spent working).
Next came Father Joe who taught all about making beer because he knew we would one day need strong arms for its defense against greedy foreign powers out there trying to steal away what was ours before long enough.
If you’re looking for a place with plenty of lakes, this is the perfect state. Whether water-sport enthusiasts or those who enjoy hiking and camping in their spare time; Wisconsin has it all!
On June 11th, the whole state of Wisconsin came together to celebrate one thing: Us.
That’s why National Wisconsin Day is so important – it reminds us all about our shared richness in history and rich joys!
History Of National Wisconsin Day
The people of Wisconsin have a lot to be proud about. They are known for their exceptionalism and hard work, two things that make them stand out in this world where so many others struggle just to get by each day.
But when it comes down to our favorite subject: Sports! We’re not satisfied until everyone understands how great they really were – from high school football stars all the way up through professionals like Antwaan Randle-El or Brett Favre; we may seem obsessive but deep down inside I’m sure there’s still love waiting around every corner for you too.
As far as the history of National Wisconsin Day, this holiday was first recognized on February 14th back in 1839 by Governor Nelson Dewey who declared that every year thereafter, children would be given a day off from school to learn about their great state!
