lPresidents’ Day is celebrated every year on the third Monday of the month of February. This is an American tradition that has been passed on from generation and that keeps bringing people together since the day of its enactment in 1885 by the U.S Congress. We all know it as Presidents’ Day but it's officially Washington's birthday, according to the federal government.
Originally, Presidents’ Day was celebrated on February 22, on the George Washington’s actual birthday. Currently, it is a day to celebrate all presidents. This holiday was moved to become part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, in an attempt to give the nation’s worker more three days weekend. However, many states have different days to celebrate this special day that does not just celebrates former and current presidents but the great contributions of their service to the this great nation.
Presidents’ Day is a day to remember to be patriotic and proud to be part of our nation and to remind every one of us that the office held by the president is one of immense responsibility. It is a day that goes beyond the rivalry of any political stance. Happy Presidents' Day!!!
