This upcoming Monday is Presidents’ Day. While talking about it with my kids earlier today, I realized I didn’t know much about the holiday. Since I don’t want to seem ill-informed in front of my kids (they’ll figure that out soon enough), I decided to educate myself. I had no idea just how interesting the story would turn out to be!
I thought Presidents’ Day was a Federal Holiday that was created to celebrate both Presidents Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays. Turns out there are two things wrong with that sentence. First, the holiday isn’t technically even called Presidents’ Day, and second, poor President Lincoln’s birthday isn’t commemorated federally at all!
