The Celebration Continues
By Jody Williams

2     The day that a newly elected president is inaugurated is celebrated by many people around the world. Most watch the events on TV from the comfort of their own homes. Many people travel to Washington, D.C., to witness the historic event firsthand.
3     The day is packed full of traditions, old and new. Most newly elected presidents and vice presidents begin their day with a worship service of their choice. From there they travel to the White House to meet with the current president and vice president of the United States. Everyone then travels together to the Capitol Building for the swearing-in ceremony. The oath of office is given at noon and the elected president officially becomes the president of the United States. The new president gives an inaugural address. This is a speech where the president shares his goals with the American people.
