Happy Alaska Day!

Alaska Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. state of Alaska, observed on October 18. It is the anniversary of the formal transfer of the Territory of Alaska from Russia to the United States, which occurred on Friday, October 18, 1867.

Size does matter. Alaska is 20% the size of the Lower 48, and 2.5 times the size of Texas.
