States presidential inauguration, held every four years since
1937 (with 2 exceptions by Eisenhower &
Reagan, on January 21st) in odd-numbered
years after years when the United States Presidential Election
takes place (as the election takes place in years divisible by four
– 2004, 2008, 2012, and so on – the inauguration takes place in
2005, 2009, 2013, etc.). The incoming/reelected President
traditionally swears-in as close to Noon as possible.
