Illinois is bringing in former President Barack Obama's birthday in style!

On his 57th born day, the nation's first black president receives his day.

ABC 7 reports the commemorative holiday is not an official state holiday. "Obama Day," as it is called on Twitter, celebrates the former president for displaying a level of grace and style our current president lacks. The holiday is a chance to look back and reflect on his two terms. 

Last year, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed a bill designating every August 4 as Barack Obama Day into law

"As a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities."

We miss our president!
