|Me at the White House|
In 1971 under the Uniform Holiday Act Washington's Birthday was moved to the Third Monday in February. Although it is still is officially celebrated by the Federal Government as Washington's Birthday in modern time it is more commonly referred to as President's Day, a date to celebrate all our US Presidents.
