Know Your Presidents’ Day
Presidents’ Day was originally established in 1885 to recognize President George Washington’s birthday. It is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government, but the holiday became known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act.
Today, Presidents’ Day is viewed as a joint celebration of both George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays, and also a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents- past and present.
