Presidents' Day
Time: All Day Event
Although the holiday is most often called “Presidents’ Day", the observed federal holiday is officially called “Washington’s Birthday".
In a sense, calling the holiday Presidents’ Day helps us reflect on not just the first president but also our nation’s founding, its values and what Washington calls in his Farewell Address the “beloved Constitution and union, as received from the Founders". Also, Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is on February 12th, so by calling the holiday ”Presidents’ Day", we can also include another remarkable president in our celebrations.
