Washington’s Birthday 2021
FEBRUARY 15, 2021
As a result of this act, three federal holidays moved permanently to a Monday — Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. Giving Americans a few more three-day weekends might have been smart; however, where Congress showed real wisdom, was formally keeping Washington’s Birthday as the name of the holiday. They believed this because they could use both Washington’s picture and Abraham Lincoln’s picture in advertisements.
