Washington's Birthday is observed the third Monday of February in honor George Washington, the first President of the United States. This date is commonly called Presidents' Day and many groups honor the legacy of past presidents on this date. This is a federal holiday, but the university usually remains open and has classes.
Patriotic Holidays. "Washington's Birthday was established as a federal holiday in 1885. It celebrates the life and contributions of George Washington, first president of the United States and general of the American Revolution. In some states, the holiday is expanded to also commemorate President Abraham Lincoln's birthday, and is thus referred to as "President's Day". It occurs on the third Monday of February, near both presidents' birthdays."
Today is Presidents Day, a time to commemorate the achievements and contributions of our great U.S. leaders. It’s also a Federal holiday so many are fortunate to have this beautiful day off – woo hoo! However you choose to spend this wonderful occasion, we would like to wish you and your loved ones a gorgeous Monday filled with pride, honor and (of course) great food. See you soon! #tacocatering #presidentsday #washingtonsbirthday
