* Last year, calendars called  “9-11”  “World Trade Center Remembrance Day” or “Patriot Day.”  It, however, looks like this year’s calendars call the anniversary day of  “9-11” “Patriot Day.”     

(050908) Note from American A:
I don't remember hearing that they made 9-11 into Patriot Day**.  But I think for several years yet people will remember and won't need to have a name other than "9-11" for that day.  Once people start to forget or it becomes more emotionally distant, I think they may start to call it Patriot Day.  I suppose calendars will call it that, though.  So I think everyone on the street will say "9-11", and calendars will say "Patriot Day."  I think they will continue to have remembrance services, but other than keeping it in their thoughts on that day I don't think people will commemorate it much as a family or community event.
