This is what Kansas Day is all about! Via Facebook.

Happy Kansas Day Eve! Sleep tight and just maybe if you have been a good Kansan, Amelia Earhart will bring you Russell-Stover chocolates. And if you have been a bad Missourian, John Brown will shoot you and your family while you slumber.Tommy Bobo

Kansas Day is January 29th. This will be the 149th anniversary of Kansas’ statehood.

Kansas turns 148 years old today! Go Jayhawks! I’m sharing one of my favorite pieces of Kansas-related art with you to mark the occasion, so please enjoy “John Brown Jayhawk”, courtesy of The World Company. The actual sculpture is housed in the newsroom at the Lawrence Journal-World.
