24th of July

For all you non-Utah readers, the 24th of July is a holiday in Utah. It is the day Mormon pioneers arrived in the valley. There is a big parade and a rodeo and a marathon and a whole lot of other stuff. I do have a question for you non-utahns. Do you still celebrate the 24th of July even though you moved away from Utah? Do your neighbors think it is weird that the 24th means anything to you?

My work is a nationwide, even worldwide, company and they do not have the 24th as a holiday. My friends think it is weird. I do not really mind it though, most of the things you do on the 24th are in the afternoon or evening, so working during the day is not a problem for me.
