Dear Citizens,

Presidents' Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February and is popularly recognized as a day to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, whose birthdays are February 22nd and February 12th respectively. Presidents' Day began in the 1880s, when the birthday of George Washington, first president of the United States, was first celebrated as a federal holiday.

In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act which moved a number of federal holidays to Mondays, allowing the nation's workers to have more 3-day weekends throughout the year. The holiday has sense become known as Presidents' Day, which celebrates all presidents (past and present) with ceremonies in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country.

Happy President's Day!

Sincerely,
