Words of Wisdom From Our Presidents For President's Day
"President's Day" holiday was first established in 1885 to recognize our first President, George Washington on his birthday. However, at that time it was not known as "President's Day." It became popularly known as President's Day after it was moved as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, whose purpose was to create more 3-day weekends for American workers and after retailers began referring to the holiday as President's Day to promote sales. Today, President's Day is understood as a celebration of the birthdays and lives of all American Presidents.
