  • Washington's Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States. It is also commonly known as Presidents Day (sometimes spelled Presidents' Day or President's Day). As Washington's Birthday or Presidents Day, it is also the official name of a concurrent state holiday celebrated on the same day in a number of states.

  • Supposed to be that they combined the observances of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays to make President's Day because they were too close together to have two separate holidays. Or something like that.
