Presidents Day George Washington

      Washington's Birthday is a special holiday for the USA. It falls on the 3rd Monday of February and is a federal holiday. Washington's Birthday is also known as Presidents Day.

      George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 in Virginia, USA. He was the first US president, a man who could be called an inborn leader. In 1971, President Richard Nixon declared a federal holiday and called it Presidents Day. Before that, two dates were celebrated, the first being February 12, Abraham Lincoln's birthday, the second was February 22, George Washington’s birthday. But due to some contradictions in the law, the holiday is still known as Washington's Birthday.

      Presidents’ birthdays in February. There are four presidents whose birthdays are in February. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, William Henry Harrison.

      Presidents’ dates of birth and death dates were not written here because America had a large number of presidents, and these dates would be redundant.

Washington Birthday celebration

      In our time, Washington's Birthday was merged with Presidents Day. On this holiday, just like on many others, some companies offer significant discounts on their deals. Presidents Day weekend can be a great time to go shopping for a new car. The dealers will be ready to give loans at 0% APR, lower prices or payment forwards on popular brands of cars such Chevrolet, Cadillac, Ford. Previously, almost all companies were closed for the holiday. But due to the fact that companies strive to increase their profits at any time, almost every business is open on this day. However, since Presidents Day is a federal and state holiday, all governmental agencies and offices are closed. Although the United States Post Office is closed, other delivery services such as DHL, UPS and FedEx continue to make deliveries.

      Schools, depending on the state, deal with this holiday in different ways. Some schools offer a few days off for teachers and students. Others celebrate the holiday in the school campus without allotting any day off.

      Presidents Day Information and announcements about the activities can be often found in newspapers, the internet, on the radio, and on TV.
