Not having children, I have no idea if kids still exchange Valentine’s Day cards in school (although I’m pretty sure they don’t call it “Saint” Valentine’s Day any more), and here in the Land of Lincoln they still close the public schools and shut down City Hall on Lincoln’s Birthday, or – if it falls on a weekend – the nearest Monday after or Friday before.
But whatever happened to Washington’s Birthday? Hasn’t it become supplanted by the more generic “Presidents’ Day” (or, as some sources and uses have it, President’s Day”)? As it turns out, actually, no.
Under Public Law 90-363, enacted January 15, 1968, the official government holiday – although moved from Washington’s actual birthday to the third Monday in February – is and remains “Washington’s Birthday.” You can look it up.
