On the third Monday of February, Presidents’ Day is celebrated, to honor not just Lincoln and Washington, but all our presidents. Prior to 1971, we celebrated Lincoln’s Birthday February 12 and Washington’s Birthday on February 22. The Uniform Monday Holiday Act, passed in 1968, officially took effect in 1971 with an executive order from President Nixon and the two birthdays were moved to the third Monday in February. Like Independence Day, Presidents’ Day is traditionally viewed as a time of patriotic celebration and remembrance.

And, be sure to fly your flag, weather permitting, on February 20th!
