Happy Presidents Day 2013

Happy Presidents Day

George Washington Valley Forge National Park PA

Beginning in 1879, this holiday was originally Washington’s Birthday and was celebrated on February 22 each year to honor our first President. In the 1970s, the celebration was shifted to the third Monday in February and in the mid 1980s it became more commonly known as Presidents Day. Although intended to be a holiday, today it seems to be more of a commercial event with many stores and businesses remaining open and having special sales.

Regardless of how you may celebrate, be sure to take some time to remember the original purpose and the sacrifices that George Washington and the others in the Revolution made to win our freedom and create this nation.
