About President's Day

US round flag blue border

President's Day, also known as Washington's Birthday is a federal holiday in the US that celebrates the life of the first President of the US, George Washington. Although the day was originally in honour of George Washington, today, it's more widely recognised as a day to honour all US Presidents of the past, which is why it's commonly referred to as Presidents' Day.

Presidents' Day is a federal holiday in most states but not all of them. It's also up to the individual state whether they officially call the holiday Presidents' Day or Washington's Birthday and whether they celebrate in honour of George Washington or Washington and other presidents. 


When is President's Day?

Despite George Washington being born on febrero 22, 1732, Presidents' Day is celebrated on the third Monday of every February each year, regardless of the date. This means the day will always fall on any day from 15th–21 febrero.

In 2020, Presidents' Day will be celebrated on Monday 17 febrero 2020. 


Will I get paid holiday on President's Day?

Whether the company you work for gives you paid holiday on Presidents' Day is entirely up to them. It's estimated that 35% of companies in the US give paid holiday on Presidents' Day. Most non-essential governing bodies will be closed on Presidents' Day.
