What’s Happening in The US Today

Sometimes living in a foreign country you forget about the smaller or less celebrated holidays! I know it happened to us for sure! Thanksgiving and Christmas are surely not forgotten but what about those other holidays that might have simply meant a three day weekend for you? Or maybe just a good time to buy appliances?

Well today in the US is President’s Day or as its lesser known as Washington’s Birthday! 

Washington’s Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February, meaning it can occur the 15th through the 21st inclusive, in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732. Colloquially, it is widely known as Presidents Day and is often an occasion to remember all the presidents, not just George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is also in February.The term “Presidents Day” was coined in a deliberate attempt to change the holiday into one honoring multiple presidents.

The day is also a state holiday in most states with official names including Presidents’ Day, President’s Day and Washington’s and Lincoln’s Birthday. Depending upon the specific law, the state holiday might celebrate officially Washington alone, Washington and Lincoln, or some other combination of U.S. presidents (such as Washington and the third president Thomas Jefferson, who was instead born in April).
