Come and Take it Day invites you to come and take it on October, 06 2024. Whatever it is one desires, Come and Take it Day is destinated to be the very date to get it. That does not mean it is allowed to grab and steal someone else’s stuff, but to stop hesitating and fulfill yourself some wishes. Looking to history events the day might also be interpreted otherwise: don’t let anyone take anything from you without fighting for it.
The term “Come and Take it” is famous in America since the American Revolution in 1778. Most likely the unofficial holiday refers to the patriotic words of Colonel McIntosh. He told the British commander Fuser who claimed his surrender to “come and take it” – although he had no chance to win any further fights. However the slogan should not be more than a game of make-believe because Come and Take it Day is not a day for war or violence in any sense.
