NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim October 9, 2002, as Leif Erikson Day. I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs to honor our rich Nordic-American heritage.
So, fire up that grill for some yummy lutefisk, and nice frosty mug of akvavit!
And, in the words of the great god Óðinn: Skal!!
