Next week on January 20, 2009, President-elect Barack Obama will be sworn-in as the 44th President of the United States. The first President to ever do this was of course President George Washington on April 30, 1789. What I think is really interesting is that the ceremonial traditions that were established by George Washington at his first presidential inauguration have been followed into present day, such as;
- using a Bible when taking the oath of office
- reading an inaugural address
- attending an inaugural ball
Attending the 2009 Inauguration is a hot ticket by any means. Hotels around the Washington D.C. area have been booked to capacity for months now. A lot of people will be throwing parties and celebrating this historic event with their family and friends.
