Mainly when people think of President’s Day they usually think of it as another day off of school or work. There is much more depth in where this national holiday came from and how it can be celebrated. Originally President’s Day was meant to celebrate the birthday of the main leader and founder of our country, George Washington.
Over the years though, it has become a day to celebrate, remember, and appreciate all the president’s that we as Americans have had in our history. Whatever party you associate yourself with, this day brings together us fellow citizens to recognize the past of what our presidents accomplished as well as helped us achieve.
Some ways that we can celebrate President’s Day can be visiting your local library and doing research on some major events our past presidents were involved in, writing a letter to a past or the current president, or maybe even taking a trivia quiz online to test your knowledge of our U.S. presidents.
Who is your favorite president and how do you think you can celebrate President’s Day in your own way? We should give more credit to these incredible men who have helped our country grow and persevere while continuing to do so.
