This morning in my Sunday newspaper bundle I saw ads for Presidents Day, President’s Day and Presidents’ Day. The same goes for commercials on TV, and also my different calendars.
However, one of the calendars has it right. Monday is Washington’s Birthday (observed).
For more about this see my post: President’s, Presidents’ or Presidents
So, here are a few of my wandering thoughts tonight.
The Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 set the celebration of Washington’s Birthday on a Monday each year. However, we will get another chance to remember Washington on his actual birthday on Friday. Perhaps I will finally write that post about his service in Truro Parish.
On top of my computer I have a little Marx figurine of President Washington. He stands along with President Lincoln. They are my two favorite presidents.
Is one missing?
I cannot tell a lie, he is one of my favorite presidents.
