Get a cake with 120 candles

Everyone join in, please:

Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear

Washington Staaaate.

Happy Birthday to you.

Washington as a state turns 120 today. Don’t feel bad if you forgot to send a card. Once you get passed 100, birthdays aren’t that big a deal until you hit the really big milestones. So mark your calendar for Nov. 11, 2014, because that’ll be 125, and you’ll probably need to send a gift, too.

Want to see an image of the telegram announcing statehood? It’s on the Secretary of State’s Web site, just click here.
