Presidents' Day, officially Washington's Birthday, is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the third Monday of February. It is often seen as a day to honor all those who have served as presidents of the United States, but it was originally established in 1885 to honor the birthday of George Washington, the first U.S. president.

The holiday was originally called Washington's Birthday, but it became known as Presidents' Day after it was moved as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which aimed to create more three-day weekends for workers.

While some states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington and other presidents, Presidents' Day is now widely seen as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents.

There are many ways to celebrate Presidents' Day. Some people attend parades or other community events, while others visit presidential libraries or museums. Many schools hold special programs about the presidents, and some families have their own traditions, such as eating cherry pie (Washington's favorite dessert) or watching a movie about a president.
