Obama Inauguration Theme: "A New Birth Of Freedom"

Barack Obama will take the oath of office as the 44th President of the United States on January 20, 2009 at 12:00 Noon EST. The theme of Mr Obama's inauguration week, "A New Birth of Freedom", was inspired by Abraham Lincoln (the 16th President of the United States) and the menu for the lunch following his swearing-in is based on foods enjoyed by Lincoln. From TimeOut London: Where to celebrate Barack Obama's inauguration in London It's worth noting that one restaurant - TGI Fridays - isn't limiting their celebrations to London on January 20th: They might not be your diner of choice but they are making a noteworthy effort on the big day. Ambitiously labeled ‘world’s largest inauguration party’, their goal is to host a huge simultaneous party in all their branches both in the UK and the USA. Their flagship Haymarket branch will lead the celebrations with a screening from Washington and authentic American cocktails. At 9pm a UK-wide toast will be made with a brand new inauguration cocktail. Are you planning to go out and celebrate Obama's inauguration? Or are you planning to host a party? Will you be in Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day? Barack Obama on the Inauguration Read more about the historical event: Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies
