About the Holiday

Many references on the web proclaim Tweed Day as a patronage of the warm and fashionable woolen clothing, though the true nature of the holiday appears to have more significance. The April 3rd date for this holiday matches the 1823 birthday of William M. Tweed, who was widely known as Boss Tweed who was convicted of stealing an estimated $25-$45 million from New York taxpayers through political corruption.[1] In this light, our research has shown that the true meaning of Tweed Day is for people to recognize the cost of political corruption and to become more informed and responsible voters.
