Presidents Day is a government holiday which means that many schools and government offices are closed along with some private businesses.
Presidents Day originally came from the federal holiday for George Washington’s Birthday.
But after the observance was changed to the third Monday in February, the holiday has become to be known as “Presidents Day” to celebrate both Abraham Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday in most states.
However, the federal government has never officially changed the name from Washington’s Birthday to Presidents Day.
