It’s #NationalNewJerseyDay?

July 27, 2018

Thanks to Twitter, we’ve learned today is #NationalNewJerseyDay.

As a lifelong NJ resident, I had no idea this was a thing. Based on some of the tweets here, it looks like I’m not the only one.

NJ isn’t perfect… see taxes, Bergen County’s antiquated Blue Laws, and pretty much anything NJ Transit related… but it is pretty damn awesome to have access to some of the best education in the nation, cultures from all over the world, the beach, and easy access to the city without having to be in the city 24/7.

There’s also this ingrained sense of pride everyone from NJ seems to have, which gives us this hard worker, underdog mentality. It does make some New Jerseyans incredibly annoying, but it also means we don’t give up, pretty much ever. 

Happy #NationalNewJerseyDay!
