Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 6 November 2020 is Truman Day.
Truman Day is a commemorative holiday to celebrate the birth of Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States. It is celebrated May 8 in Missouri as a state holiday, according to Missouri Revised Statutes Section 9-035 Public Holidays and nationally by the United States Democratic Party. Since Truman was the only president to come from Missouri, this day is special for this state. However, after the financial crisis of 2008-2010, there were unsuccessful moves by the state government to abolish the holiday. For Missouri state employees, this is a paid holiday.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:59 UTC on Friday, 6 November 2020.
