George Washington’s Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first president of the United States. It is also a state holiday in Tennessee and other states where it is known by a variety of names including Presidents’ Day and Washington’s and Lincoln’s Birthday.
Washington’s Birthday was the first federal holiday to honor an individual’s birth date. In 1885, Congress designated Feb. 22 as a holiday for all federal workers. In 1971, Lincoln’s birth date, which was never a U.S. Federal Government holiday, was added to make the Uniform Monday Holiday Law changing the date to the third Monday in February.
