President’s Day

February 20th, 2006 by Laura Moncur in Holidays

President’s Day just feels like an excuse for the mail carriers and bank tellers to take a day off, but it all started with the desire to honor some of our best leaders.

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
George Washington, letter to his niece Harriet Washington, October 30, 1791

If you have the day off, enjoy it. If you don’t, blame any activity on the fact that the banks are closed and the mail won’t come until tomorrow.
