Did you know?
Presidents haven't always been inaugurated in January. The Constitution's Twentieth Amendment (which went into effect February 6, 1933) dictates that presidential terms begin on January 20. Prior to the second inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937, newly elected presidents took office on March 4.
