Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

I woke up this morning and found that according to my calendar, today is “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.” I don’t remember having ever seen that observance marked on a calendar before. Then, when I went to school, I found the university’s flag at half-mast–I’m guessing for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Am I oblivious, or has this been going on for a long time? When did Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day become one of the “Lesser Feasts and Fasts” in the liturgical calendar of American civil religion?
