President’s Day

Every February, people in the U.S. “hail to the chief” and celebrate President’s Day. Since George Washington is considered the “father of the U.S.”, President’s Day began in 1885 to recognize his contributions to the country. It was originally celebrated on February 22, which is Washington’s actual birthday. President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday was also celebrated in February. In 1971, the days were combined and Presidents’ Day was designated as the third Monday in February.

In some places today, patriotic and historical groups reenact certain events in history. There are parades, fireworks, and celebrations around the country. In many schools, students learn about the lives and work of Washington and Lincoln but also the accomplishments of all of the U.S. presidents.
