President's Day



Happy President's Day.  In an effort to provide an educational experience for you in Oz Land, I would like to remind you that this day honors the founder of our country  - George Washington.  While many American's believe that it is Presidents' Day - honoring Washington as well as Lincoln (and probably several others too), I am here to let you know that it is simply not the case. 

Here is some more information from our friends over at Wikipedia...

Washington's Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States. It is also commonly known as Presidents Day (sometimes spelled Presidents' Day or President's Day). As Washington's Birthday or Presidents Day, it is also the official name of a concurrent state holiday celebrated on the same day in a number of states. 

That has been our educational message for the day.  Happy Birthday George.
