Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in
February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—Washington’s actual
day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after
it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to
create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several
states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of George 
Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now
popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present
