Today could be taken in many ways. The facts that the Eastern United States is far enough away from the Western Untied States that the two could be thought of as two different countries. We have football games where it’s the East verses the West and then , of course, we have the recent “Balloons” that show the East trying to get a better view of what the West is all about. So take it however you want but today is East meets West, for good or for bad.
How to celebrate – Contact a friend or relative who lives on a different coast from you. Fly your own weather balloons. Live in the mid-west so you can have the best of both worlds.
