President's Day is a United States federal holiday that was initially created to honor and celebrates the life and achievements of George Washington, the first President of the United States (1789-1797) and 'The Father of his Country'. More recently In 1971, it was changed to the third Monday of February to honor and remember all past US presidents, and in particular Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson. The celebration of President's Day has become a three day weekend event and an occasion for community celebrations and parades. Many stores and businesses hold special sales.
