U.S. President’s Day

Today, Monday February 20, 2006 is a holiday in the United States of America. It is President’s Day and it is celebrated on the third Monday of February each year. President’s Day is actually a joint celebration of the birthdays of two past U.S. presidents - Lincoln's Birthday (February 12) and Washington's Birthday (February 22).

Now President’s Day is not only a celebration of these two men, but all of the men who have served as President in the United States of America. There are various events and celebrations across the country, with the key ones taking place in Washington, D.C. Also, as with most statutory holidays, certain banks and stores will be closed throughout the United States.
