Originally established as a day of recognition of our first president, George Washington, in 1885, this Monday we celebrate the holiday known as President’s Day. President Washington’s Birthday became known as President’s Day after being moved to the third Monday in February in 1971 as part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. While many states continue to celebrate the individual birthdays of our former presidents on their respective days, President’s Day is a day in which we can celebrate all of the U.S. presidents both current and former.
This Monday let us remember and honor all of the leaders of this great nation. And while we may have our favorites, it is a day in which we can commemorate all of the United States’ presidents and the enormous sacrifice and commitment they made in order to lead the land of the free. I hope you all have a wonderful presidents day and remember the legacies of the men who have shaped our country into what it is today.
