What Is


America yesterday took a national holiday for Presidents’ Day but what is Presidents’ Day, people are asking: the answer is that the birthdays of presidents Washington and Lincoln both fall within a few days of each other in February, and states used to observe one or other or both as holidays, so a few years ago, to tidy things up, it was agreed to celebrate the Monday between the two as Presidents’ Day.
