An inaugural service has been a tradition for most modern presidencies. Obama plans to hold his on Jan. 22 at 10:30 a.m. That’s according to people involved in the planning speaking on a condition of anonymity without authorization to discuss the event ahead of its official announcement.

Obama begins his second term at noon on Sunday, Jan. 20, and is planning a private swearing in at the White House with limited press coverage. His public inauguration will be on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Monday, Jan. 21, since the ceremony is not traditionally held on Sundays.
