Presidents Day

Presidents Day is another one of those interesting holidays that we Americans get to take the day off of work.

I had to ask myself why in the world is presidents day so important.  Another question I thought to myself… shouldn’t they change president’s day according to what president is currently in office?   I mean it is officially George Washington’s birthday… but who the hell was around back then?

I found this interesting article on the history behind president’s day.  Sorry folks, but as long as George Washington is printed on the Dollar Bill, as it was in 1968… I don’t think kids will ever forget who George is.:

Debate over the Uniform Monday Holiday Bill in 1968 touched on the fear that George Washington would be forgotten in the schoolrooms and future generations would not know about the Father of Our Country

Sorry folks, but as long as George Washington is printed on the Dollar Bill, as it was in 1968… I don’t think kids will ever forget who George is.  :roll:
