trivia 2/22

Did you know ??
This week we celebrated "President's Day"
But what exactly is being celebrated?
Washington’s birthday. Until 1968, Washington’s Birthday was officially celebrated on February 22 (which happens to be his birthday). That year, Congress passed the Uniform Holidays bill, assigning special Mondays to serve as national holidays. The third Monday in February became Washington’s Birthday, and although many states call it “Presidents Day,” it is still legally “Washington’s Birthday.” Ironically, the latest date on which Washington’s Birthday can now fall is February 21 . . . making it impossible for Washington’s Birthday to fall on Washington’s birthday
