American’s two most popular and famous Presidents were both born in February. Until very recently, the birthdays of each President were officially celebrated but the holidays occurring in the middle of the week disrupted the full workweek.
So ten years ago the Congress reformed the entire system of American Holidays to make them more convenient for both business and individuals. Thus, the two holidays celebrated in honour of President-Washington and Lincoln were joined into one and celebrated on the second Monday of February.
Various communities observe the holiday by staging important achievements in Washington’s life. Many shopping malls and stores are open this day and run sales to attract shoppers who have the day off from work or school. For owners of shops President’s Day is the chance to make more profit.
