President’s Day is observed on Monday, February 15th, 2010.

In the 1880’s President’s Day was originally a federal holiday celebrating George Washington’s birthday. In 1968 a bill was passed which moved the observance of certain holidays to Monday. In 1971, after the bill went into effect, President’s Day became the commonly accepted name due to retailer’s using this to promote their holiday weekend sales.
