Celebrate Presidents' Day On Feb. 20

Celebrate Presidents' Day On Feb. 20
Posted in Donate Car the United States Blog, Monday, February 20, 2017

Originally celebrated in 1885 in honor of George Washington's Birthday on Feb. 22, Presidents' Day is now celebrated the third Monday in February. Presidents' Day will be celebrated on Feb. 20 this year and it is a great time to reflect on all of the hard and important work presidents have done throughout our nation's history. 

Rather than just celebrate Washington's Birthday, some states use Presidents' Day to celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday as well, which is Feb. 12. Throughout the country, though, it is common to celebrate all past and present presidents on Presidents' Day.
