Why Tuesdays?

The law in the United States says that nation elections will be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in the month of November. Ever wonder why?

Well it’s not in the Constitution  but it can be found in an 1845 law that established Tuesdays because it didn’t interfere with the Sabbath or market day, which was traditionally Wednesday.

So if you have a problem with Tuesdays blame it on Christian farmers having too much power.

Ironically John Oliver, who is British, explained this on his Sabbath night HBO program, Last Week Tonight.
