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.

FACTS ABOUT THE COCA-COLA SANTA CLAUS

My hat's off to the pause that refreshes 1931

Although many credit our modern day Santa to Thomas Nast,
Santa’s jolly look all started in 1931 with legendary illustrator
Haddon Sundblom for a Coca-Cola holiday ad campaign. His
Santa has become one of the most beloved cultural icons and
an anticipated part of the Christmas holiday tradition.
