President’s Day 2022

Washington's Birthday

Today, Monday, February 21, 2022, the United States is celebrating President’s Day. This is a federal holiday that is celebrated every year on the third Monday in February. The holiday was originally established in 1885 to recognize President George Washington – the nation’s first president.

President’s Day is now viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present. As a federal holiday, many banks and schools join with federal institutions in closing their doors so their workers can enjoy a three-day weekend. SOF News is joining in this effort to celebrate President’s Day 2022 and will return to normal publication on Tuesday.
