 Tips and Ideas for Celebrating President's Day


Presidents' Day is celebrated in the United States on the third Monday in February. Originally there were two holidays, Feb 12 and Feb 22 to honor the birthdays of two of our greatest president's, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  In 1971 President Richard Nixon proclaimed Presidents' Day, to be observed on the 3rd Monday of February, to honor all past presidents of the United States of America rather than just two.  So celebrate President's Day by planning some great activities.
