    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

    I remember when they changed and a lot of people were not happy about it.

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