Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) February 17, 2013
President’s Day is a federal holiday that is historically observed on the third Monday in February across the United States of America. Originally, President’s Day was known as George Washington’s birthday, but the shift began during the late 1960’s from George Washington’s birthday and transitioning to the holiday we now celebrate as President’s Day. Congress proposed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act that shifted specific dates for many federal holidays to predetermined Mondays. It also included a provision that combined the celebration of Washington’s Birthday with Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Although there are several states that still celebrate George Washington and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday separately, this celebration without a doubt honors all forty-four Presidents of the United States of America.
