Monday February 17 is President’s Day. In 1880, Congress made February 22 a Holiday in honor of George Washington. This holiday was later changed to be on the third Monday of February to provide a long weekend for federal workers. President’s Day combines George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday to form one federal holiday. The United States Postal Service offices will be closed and regular mail delivery will not take place. In addition, most banks and government offices will be closed along with some school districts.
