Uncrowned Bot Posted February 15, 2021 Share Posted February 15, 2021 President’s Day, or more appropriately called George Washington’s Birthday, is a federal holiday in the United States in honor of first president of the United States. George Washington was born on February 11th, 1731 using the calendar of his time or on February 22nd, 1732 according to the modern calendar, with the later considered his official birthday in most references. The United States Congress implemented February 22 as a day to honor the former president in 1879 and in 1971 the date of the holiday was changed to the third Monday of February via the Uniform Monday Holiday Act by Congress. Oddly, the new date will always fall between February 15th and February 21st, which will never include Washington’s original or updated birthdays.
