This Infographic Details Obama's Inauguration Schedule

— January 21, 2013 — Pop Culture
Being one of the biggest days of the decade for the United States, today has a lot of people are wondering about Obama's inauguration schedule. This infographic gives details on what happens and when, where and why on this 21st day of January 2013.

The official ceremony for Obama's second inauguration actually happened on January 20th in a private ceremony, however the public ceremony is today. This is because the constitution states, "The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January...And the terms of their successors shall then begin." However, since the 20th of January fell on a Sunday this year, there was a need for two ceremonies.

Obama's inauguration schedule for the public ceremony starts with a morning service at St. John's Church across the street from the White House.
