    George Washington is who the day originally honored. Although there is some controversy on who all it now honors today (answers vary from Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, to all the Presidents of the United States.)

    It’s a mixup of an answer since americans believe different things; either honoring Washington’s birthday or Lincoln’s birthday. But I think President’s Day is celebrated to honor the legacies of ALL the US Presidents.

    Washington’s Birthday is celebrated as a federal holiday on the third Monday in February. It honors the first President of the United States.

    Today, some states also honor Abraham Lincoln and other Presidents on the third Monday in February and call the holiday Presidents’ Day.

    Idk if this is a trick or not , lol….but here is my answer:
    Because both Washington and Lincoln’s b-day was too close to each other, a day which was in the middle of both days were chosen and signed for to be the one, but still kept the name Washington’s day!

    It was believed that Presidents Day celebrates both Lincoln and Washington, but today most people believe that it is only to celebrate Washington.

    I believe that it should celebrate all presidents for what they have done for our country because we wouldn’t be were we are today without any one of them.

    It’s supposed to celebrate Washington’s Birthday, February 22. But since Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday is February 12, there was no sense in having those holidays so close together, so they were lumped together into President’s Day, celebrated on the third Monday of February.
