President’s Day

George-Washington-9524786-1-402

Did you know President’s Day is actually George Washington’s birthday? The holiday was actually enacted in 1879; contrary to the common assumption that the holiday was created right after Washington helped to found the country.

Side note: the holiday can also be spelled as “Presidents Day”, which is also interesting. Anyways, celebrate and use today to remember we live in a country that George Washington contributed to create!
