Celebrating Edison's birthday

That's what Gooogle is doing with its doodle of the time. There's not much time to celebrate on erev Shabbos, but if you want to commemorate the occasion on Sunday, the best way to do so is with a visit to his home and lab in West Orange, NJ.  Children under 16 get in free.  The charge for adults is $7.  Find out more in the description at http://www.examiner.com/jewish-bridal-in-new-york/don-t-knock-a-cheap-date-part-5-historical-figures-and-their-homes

One somewhat confusing thing on the site for the park is the fact that Edison Day is given for a future date of June 4, 2011 but is described as having already taken place.
Edison Day 2011
National Park Service celebrated Edison Day on Saturday, June 4, 2011, at Thomas Edison National Historical Park. Admission was free and all welcome. Activities took place at both the Glenmont Estate in Llewellyn Park and the Laboratory Complex on Main Street.
Maybe Edison invented a time machine that we're not aware of.
