Dressing Up For George And Abe
Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday honored on the third Monday of every February. This date was first selected to commemorate George Washington, the first President of the United States, but since Lincoln’s birthday falls on February 12, we tend to observe both of the nation’s favorite past presidents.
President’s Day is more of a shopping holiday (and a fun reason to get the day off work for a long weekend) so we’re sharing one of our favorite ways to celebrate this day – in style.
