Celtics may have made June 17th a Massachusetts Holiday

June 17th should become a Holiday in the state of Massachusetts. Cemented with the fact that the Boston Celtics won the 2024 NBA Championship on Monday. 16 years to the day the 2008 squad hoisted the Franchise’s 17th Larry O’Brien Trophy. Many great milestones have occurred on this day in particular. Not to mention 617 is Boston’s area code I find it hard to see why we cannot make this happen.

Boston is a place that prides itself on tradition and celebrating history whether it is being made before our very eyes or in years past. Danny Ainge helped convince Al Horford to sign with the Celtics in 2016 by reiterating that you can win a title anywhere but there is nothing like winning a title in Boston. Making June 17th a holiday goes beyond merely commemorating the Celtics’ title wins in 2008 and now in 2024. It embodies the spirit of Boston—the dedication to sports, community, and history that makes the city as well as the state of Massachusetts so unique. Winning in Boston you are beloved forever, ask David Ortiz, Malcolm Butler, Kevin Garnett, Tom Brady, and so many more.

Establishing June 17th as a state holiday would be a fitting tribute to Boston’s sports heritage and community spirit. I believe in truly allowing the City of Champions to have that annual reminder of the remarkable moments that have shaped Boston and continue to push for even more title glory.

Like Tom Brady once said his favorite championship was always the next one. While it is important to celebrate accomplishments that will live on forever, let June 17th be a reminder for future Boston teams in any major sports that there’s nothing like winning in Boston. Regardless, June 17th will go down in Boston sports history forever.
