Presidents Day

Loading Events

Every third Monday of February (February 15) we celebrate Presidents’ Day in all its patriotic glory. Many people relish in their day off of work, but they might be surprised to know that that was the point! It wasn’t until 1971 that Presidents’ Day moved in an effort to create more three-day weekends for the public. They hoped that this would inspire greater productivity nationwide. It was believed that at this point in the year, the restorative effects of the Winter holidays have begun to fade and we need another break to regain some of that lost stamina.
