Happy Presidents Day 2020!!!

Happy Presidents Day 2020!!! Tomorrow is 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 tomorrow will be a work day, but I hope the rest of you get to enjoy a day off, and take the opportunity to spend quality time with your family, and honor our Presidents.  Happy Presidents Day 2020!!!

A working day for me, too, George. I do remember the two separate February holidays, 2/12 for Lincoln and 2/22 for Washington. My brother's birthday is 2/22 so that one was always easy to remember.

I wish you a productive day tomorrow.

Good morning, George... Happy President's Day to you. I, too, will be working... can't remember taking the day off in forever. But I do remember how much I loved having separate days for Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays when most people did take those days off.

Happy President's Day to you too, George.  It's going to be a quiet day for me.  I have little to do other than get the car washed!

Just stopped by to say HI, George. I did some work on President's Day as well, as did a number of people I know, but we also made a trip to see family in Los Angeles.

I expect that you are very busy.

Consumers are anxious to take advantage of the very low mortgage interest rates.

Have to (sadly) laugh at your comment that the holiday has become an excuse for sales and promotions, George Souto ... all too true ...

It's been an interesting week for lenders, hasn't it?  But here it is Friday ... at last ...
