Presidents Day

Just as the February blues start to sink in, the nation breathes a sigh of relief at the arrival of President’s Day Weekend. Each year, the third Monday of every February is set aside to honor George Washington’s birthday, colloquially known in many U.S. states as Presidents’ Day in order to celebrate all presidents including Abraham Lincoln, who was also born in February. Nationwide, many businesses and schools celebrate with a day off—perfect for a short end-of-winter getaway.
