‘Barack Obama Day’ now an Illinois holiday

(NBC) Former President Barack Obama got a special treat for his birthday this year – his very own holiday.

Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law Friday a measure to designate Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” across Illinois.

The newest state holiday will be celebrated each year on the 44th president’s birthday, beginning in 2018.
