President's Day is observed on the third Monday of February in recognition of President George Washington's birthday of Feb. 22, 1732. The date was established in accordance with the Uniform Federal Holidays Act of 1971. While it was originally to honor Washington's birthday, the holiday has since often become an occasion honoring all presidents.
