Let's Get Things Started
By Jody Williams
  

1     Each time a new president is elected, a special day is planned. This day is called Inauguration Day. This is the day when the newly elected president officially becomes President of the United States.
 
2     The day becomes a part of history. Presidents may choose to honor traditions from years past. Some add their own touches. Many of the Inauguration Day traditions began with George Washington. Not all presidents honor the traditions that he started. Some start new traditions based upon the time they are elected.
 
3     Many begin their day with a worship service. The elected president and his family may choose to attend a service in the morning. This tradition began in 1933. Franklin Roosevelt attended a service at the church next to the White House. Since then almost every president has also attended a morning service.
