How much time has to pass, or what conditions need to be met, in order for an event to be considered historical?|
I suppose technically all events that have occurred are historical, but we wouldn't tend to think of news from, say, yesterday or last week as historical. So what counts? I would think that by now 9/11 is a historical event, but what about, say, Kanye declaring his candidacy for president at the VMA's? Is that a historical event? How about the legalization of same sex marriage in the U.S? What about the Seahawks blowing it in the Super Bowl? What's the cutoff?
Are there events that you consider historical that happened chronologically after something you don't consider historical?
