Presidents' DayThird Monday in February
This U.S. holiday is designated as "Washington's Birthday" in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. It specifically honors George Washington, the first President of the United States.
The holiday was celebrated on Washington's actual birthday, February 22, from 1796 to 1970.
On January 1, 1971, the federal holiday was shifted to the third Monday in February by the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, placing it between February 15 and 21 and never on Washington's actual birthday.
