Although the holiday was traditionally celebrated on February 22, which was the actual date of Washington’s birth, the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day in 1971.
The result is that Presidents’ Day has now become a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. The day is usually marked by public ceremonies in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country.
