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.
A number of the states that celebrate Washington's Birthday also recognize Lincoln's Birthday as a separate legal holiday.
