"Honoring our U.S. Presidents"
Presidents Day is a federal holiday in the United States, that is observed on the third Monday in February; which is this coming Monday! "Presidents Day", which went into effect in 1971, started out to to honor the birthdays of both George Washington whose birthday is February 22nd, and Abraham Lincoln. whose birthday is February 12th.
This day however is now set aside, by more and more of America’s population, to honor all of the past United States Presidents that have served our country. It is celebrated with public ceremonies in Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States.
