There Is NO Federal Holiday Called Presidents Day
Hope I don't have to take back my new fridge now!
No lie: It's Washington's Birthday, not Presidents Day
Like George Washington, we cannot tell a lie, so we must share a brutal truth. This is not Presidents Day.
Nor is it a national holiday designed to honor Abraham Lincoln along with Washington.
On the federal calendar, at least, Monday is still Washington’s birthday.
In fact, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 — which moved the observance of Washington’s birthday from Feb. 22 to the third Monday in February — does not name Lincoln at all. Nor does it mention Presidents Day, Presidents' Day or even President's Day

Some states, however, recognize it as President's Day.

10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.
