Checkers Day is celebrated on September 23rd to commemorate the famous “checkers” speech made by Richard M. Nixon as he sought election in 1952. Nixon faced claims of misusing donations meant for election expenses. Instead of shying away from the allegations, Nixon decided to deal with the issue during a TV interview.

The Checkers speech became one of the most celebrated speeches not because of the financial details but the introduction of Checkers, a Cocker Spaniel. During the speech, Nixon stated that he intended to keep one gift, a black and white dog named Checkers, that his children loved dearly. The speech was seen and heard by the largest TV audience at the time, and Nixon won the hearts of many Americans. Thanks to the speech, Nixon made the Republican ticket, and we celebrate National Checkers Day.
