Happy Delaware Day

On this day (December 7th) in 1787, Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States of America, and now gets to be first in every list of states for all time.

My favorite Delaware facts are that the state bird is the Blue Hen, and the state tree is the American holly. This is why I have one in my garden (the holly tree, not the chicken). There is a longer list of Delaware State facts here.
