Presidents Day also known as Washington’s Birthday is a day
dedicated to celebrating all U.S. presidents, past and present.

The holiday was originally established in 1885 to celebrate
President George Washington’s birthday after his death. The
day became known as Presidents Day when it became part of
the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which was an attempt
to create more three-day weekends for federal employees.
