Every four years on January 20, Inauguration Day will occur next on January 20, 2024. The recent vice-president-elect and president-elect are sworn into office by taking the presidential oath of office on Inauguration Day, which is observed in Washington, D.C. by residents of the United States. The next four-year presidential term of the United States officially begins today. Parades and other celebrations are often held to mark the occasion.
Several festivities that have been customary take place on the inauguration day. The outgoing president first travels with the president-elect to the Capitol for the Swearing-In ceremony, then the vice president and president are sworn in and the president makes his inaugural speech as the outgoing president and first lady depart the White House to begin their post-presidential lives. The president and vice president are treated to lunch after the Inaugural rituals.
INAUGURATION DAY HISTORY
The inauguration ceremonies of several presidents and vice presidents-elect of the United States have been honoured by American people for more than two centuries. On April 30, 1789, in New York City, George Washington was given his very first inauguration.
For a variety of reasons, including the uncertainty of the weather and to shorten the passive period of the outgoing president’s tenure in office, the ceremonial day was shifted to January 20, 1933. The day of the inauguration would be moved to January 21 if it fell on a Sunday.
Although somewhat customary, the inauguration has changed throughout time, particularly when a sitting president passes away or resigns. Vice President Andrew Johnson secretly took the presidential oath when President Abraham Lincoln passed away in 1865. Then, after the tragic death of John F. Kennedy in 1963, Lyndon B. Johnson was inaugurated as president on an aircraft. There were no official inauguration ceremonies on a total of six times.
According to the U.S. Constitution, the 35-word oath administered by the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is the most important condition for swearing in the new president. The Oath of Office’s precise terms are as follows:
I hereby solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully carry out the duties of the Office of the President of the United States and that I will do all in my power to uphold, defend, and preserve the Constitution of the United States.
As of January 1, 2021, 45 presidents of the United States have spoken this oath 72 times.
