Presidents’ Day is a federal U.S. holiday observed on the third Monday in February.
This day is set aside by more and more of America’s population to honor all of the past United States Presidents who have served our country. Two of our nation’s most prominent Presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, are brought to mind as we celebrate this day. Their birth dates, which fall close to this same time, have been honored for decades.
Presidents’ Day is celebrated with public ceremonies in Washington, D.C., and throughout the United States.
