Those that live, or have lived, in Massachusetts know that we celebrate a holiday no one else in the country (except I think Maine) even knows exists; Patriots Day. This is the day that the Boston Marathon is run. Well apparently Marathon, Greece is recognizing ours by lighting the eternal flame in Hopkinton, where the Boston Marathon begins. This will be the first eternal flame in North America.
I’m pretty excited, and fully intend to go see it the next time I go visit my family since I grew up about 10 miles from teh starting line.
