An American holiday, Presidents Day was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington and is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government.
Prior to 1971, February 22 was traditionally celebrated since it was Washington’s actual day of birth. But it was moved to the third Monday in February as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers, becoming known as Presidents Day. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.
Which leads to modern day controversy of whether there should be an apostrophe or not. There are those who believe there should be no apostrophe, arguing that the day is for presidents but not belonging to them. Some people prefer the apostrophe before the “s,” President's Day, arguing that since the official holiday is Washington's Birthday clearly there is only a single president in mind.
