President’s Day – A Day To Honor Presidents Past And Present

Presidents-Day

Presidents’ Day was originally established in 1855 in recognition of President George Washington, the first president of the United States.

George Washington’s actual date of birth was February 22nd, however as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, Presidents’ Day is now celebrated on the third Monday of February each year in order to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers.
