News from Boston: the Public Library had signs out front today explaining that it was closed for Evacuation Day, helpfully explaining that the holiday (celebrated only in Boston) commemorates the departure of the British troops that were laying seige to the city in March of 1776.

It's just a coincidence that Evacuation Day coincides exactly with St. Patrick's Day, and mere happenstance that the notice describing the holiday was printed on green paper.
