Today February 22, is National California Day. 

Many Californians in Idaho have never actually celebrated National California Day. Even Californians in California don't celebrate National California Day. So it's a day to commemorate the Golden State of the United States of America. 

If you live in Idaho, you know how many people talk about how Californians are ruing the state. It's such a thing that people from California are nervous about mentioning that they're even from the Golden State.
