Washington Monument and Capitol Building on the National Mall, Washington, DC
Happy Presidents Day!. Presidents Day
Celebrated on the third Monday of February each year, Presidents Day honors and commemorates US presidents past and present.
While the holiday originally celebrated George Washington's birthday on February 22, the date was changed so that it always fell on a Monday, allowing the average working American to enjoy more long weekends during the year (and we surely aren't complaining).
Presidents Day, much like the Fourth of July, is a great opportunity to remember the country's history and revisit its past and heritage. Also, if you can't wait for July to flaunt your patriotism, this is the perfect day to bring out your favorite red, white, and blue adornments.
