This Week In Review

Celebrating President's Day 
February 17th
Great Seal

From Washington to Bush

Until 1971, both February 12 and February 22 were observed as federal holidays to honor the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (Feb. 12) and George Washington (Feb. 22).

In 1971 President Richard Nixon proclaimed one single federal holiday, the Presidents' Day, to be observed on the third Monday of February, honoring all past presidents of the United States of America.

Since that change in 1971, the common term has been "President's Day"
