Honoring Our Presidents

PresDayJ

Presidents’ Day is a holiday to honor all U.S. presidents. It is celebrated on the third Monday in February. In 1885 February 22nd—Washington’s actual birthday was established to honor his many accomplishments.  It is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. The holiday became known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act to provide several three-day weekends for the nation’s workers.  Rita Bay
