Move aside Super Tuesday, March 3 is National Anthem Day!

National Anthem Day commemorates the day the United States adopted “The Star Spangled Banner” as its National Anthem, according to NationalDayCalender.com.

"The Star Spangled Banner" was written by Francis Scott Key and became the National Anthem in 1931.

The United States didn’t have an officially declared anthem until a congressional resolution, signed by President Herbert Hoover, on March 3rd, 1931.

National Anthem Day is observed by singing the Star Spangled Banner.
