Happy Presidents Day 2019!!!

Happy Presidents Day 2019!!! Today was Presidents Day, and for most workers in the U.S. a day off from work.  Presidents Day was not always known as Presidents Day, in fact up until 1968 there was no Presidents Day.

Presidents Day was originally known as Washington's Birthday, and established in 1885 by President Chester Arthur.  Later many states decided that Abraham Lincoln was equally a great President, and started to celebrate his birthday as well.

In 1968 Congress decided that both days should be combined into one Holiday, celebrated on the third Monday of February, and call it Presidents Day.  Today few remember the two separate celebrations in honor of Washington and Lincoln, and think that it is in honor of all Presidents, and special Sales Promotions.

For me today was a work day, but I hope the rest of you got to enjoy a day off, and took the opportunity to spend quality time with your family, and honor our Presidents.  Happy Presidents Day 2019!!!

Good morning, George... for me it was a work day, as well. I don't think I've had a President's Day off since I was a bank officer and that "career" ended in 1976.

Good evening George - Most of the service type companies don't have it off.  Of course, in our area the whole week is off from school meaning ski areas and airlines raise their rates.

I forgot it was President's Day. It was a regular work day for me. And, yes, I'm old enough to remember when Washington and Lincoln "lost" their independent days and were merged into one, but of course I didn't remember the exact year. Thanks for the refresher course.

Oh, I missed this one, George! Funny but, Ray shares Washington's birthday (2/22) and I always confuse 2/22 with the 'celebrated' President's day...well, at least I get it right once in 7 years! LOL

Have a great week ahead!

Hi George - waking up this morning and seeing snow was surprise for me.  I wonder what March will hold.
