Confederation of States
Victory Day or V Day is often celebrated with fireworks and general partying throughout the entire week. All government jobs and schools are closed the entire week of September 22 and on the actual day of September 22 the President of the Confederation of States reads General George S. Patton's speech to his men when they captured Chicago. It is commonly called the Victory Speech.
Californians often celebrate the day with much drinking and partying. Often they take the day after as Hangover Day where many people are out of work from the hangover from the massive amounts of alcohol consumed the previous day.
