Happy Presidents' Day

A little bit of History…

« Presidents’ Day » is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States.

It is also a state holiday in most states where it is known by a variety of names including « Presidents’ Day », « Washington’s  Birthday » or « Lincoln’s Birthday » and officially celebrates, depending upon the state, Washington alone, Washington and Lincoln, or some other combination of U.S. Presidents.

Colloquially, the holiday is widely known as « Presidents’ Day » and is often an occasion to celebrate, or at least remember, all presidents and not just George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Both Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthdays are in February. In historical rankings of Presidents of the United States both Lincoln and Washington are frequently the top two Presidents.

Picture this on Granite would like to wish everyone a Happy Presidents’ Day with this picture of the Roosevelt Memorial located in Hillsborough County Memorial Park and Museum.
