    I don't think I will ever get used to calling September 11th Patriot's Day. I grew up in Maine. New England still celebrates 19 April as Patriot's Day to commemorate the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

    Hi, David,

    I understand about "Patriots' Day" (plural) and its significance to New Englanders. But I'd like to gently point out that September 11th has been designated, by law, as the singular "Patriot Day".

    I don't disagree with it at all. It's just going to take some retraining on my part.
