Today, February 17, is Presidents Day, which is celebrated on the third Monday of February each year. Most venues across the country remain open on the day but some businesses may operate reduced hours depending on the location.

Presidents Day originally celebrated George Washington, the first president of the country. Washington's birthday, February 22, began to be celebrated unofficially annually following his death in 1799 in his remembrance.

Presidents Day didn't become an official federal holiday until around 1870. It soon evolved into a day that celebrates all U.S. presidents in the country, from the past and present, in the modern age.
