This news was not only unprecedented but made multiple people across the country and the world overjoyed.

Americans screamed out windows in excitement over the news. Car horns honked a chorus everywhere. People were banging pots, pans, and garbage pails expressing their joy.  Musicians played impromptu music. People danced in the streets. Crowds gathered to rejoice this momentous occasion of not only a new president that some Americans were excited to have in office, but of a woman finally taking the role as Vice President in the Oval Office.

The celebrations went on from day into the night and went on in Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York City, Wilmington, Los Angeles, and many more U.S. Cities. Celebrations happened abroad in Ireland, fireworks were shot in London and Scotland, and church bells were rung in Paris and Munich.

Saturday, November 7th, was a very joyous day for some. Many Americans came together happily and celebrated this historic day. Whether you voted for Joe Biden or not, Americans came together to celebrate the future of what’s to come in America.
