February Honors Presidents

Presidents’ Day is celebrated every year on the third Monday in February. This year it will be on the 17th of the month. The American holiday commemorates all the presidents past and present. The origins of this day began in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington on February 22.

It wasn’t until much later that it became an official holiday to honor all as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This gave workers the advantage of having three-day weekends. However, in some states the birthdays of Washington and Abraham Lincoln are recognized on separate days.

There are actually two more former presidents who have a birthday in February including William Henry Harrison and Ronald Reagan. Another official holiday in February is Martin Luther King Jr. Day which was signed into law in 1983.

Presidents Day is a patriotic holiday where all governmental agencies, schools and bank institutions are officially closed. Celebrations include reenactments and historical groups stage shows while the rest of the country takes the time to relax and enjoy the day off.

It is also an opportunity for online Bingo players to take advantage of some of the great promotional offers made available to recognize this day. Check out the list US Bingo sites where they are more commonly offered. Exclusives include Tournaments, Free Bingo, Deposit Bonuses, Free Spins and so much more.

Happy Presidents Day to all our American friends across the pond and may your day be filled with good times.
