What did you do on President's day?

Until 1971, both February 12 and February 22 were observed as federal public holidays to honor the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and George Washington (February 22).

In 1971 President Richard Nixon proclaimed one single federal public holiday, the Presidents' Day, to be observed on the third Monday of February, honoring all past presidents of the United States of America.

See what Snopes said about President's day.

I worked today, but many people had the day off. I hope you had a good Monday. How did you spend It?

Sleep in?
Float in the pool?
Play a few games?
Check your makeup?

Hi Nan!
Well I had to work too...but I ended up getting off 1/2 day so I could take my boys to their dental appts. it was cleaning time....they weren't happy! Boy that floating in the pool sounds really good right about now!
Hope you have a great week. It's blowing really hard here and it's very very cold!
Hugs,
Rose

Good Evening Nan,
"HAPPY PRESIDENT'S DAY" to you. Sorry you had to work my friend. Our bank and post office was closed. There was even some Schools that were out, but not ours. I love the pictures and wish I was at a pool. LOL. I layed around and caught up on my sleep or tried to. I cooked supper for me and the girls and did some laundry. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
