How much do you know about Inauguration Day? Take our quiz.

President Obama will be sworn in for his second term at noon on Monday, Jan. 21, in the 57th presidential inauguration in American history. But in fact, Mr. Obama will have been sworn in officially the day before in a small, private ceremony. That is because this year, Jan. 20 – Inauguration Day, as mandated by the Constitution – is a Sunday, and by tradition, whenever Inauguration Day lands on a Sunday, the festivities take place the next day.
