SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT PRESIDENT'S DAY

To show respect for the first President of the Untied States, (George) Washington's Day became celebrated across the U.S.  Years later, to commemorate the accolades of Abraham Lincoln (whose birthday was also in February), the celebration of his birth was merged with Washington's to become President's day.  President's day is celebrated on the third Monday of every February.
