The President's Day holiday traces its roots to 1800 when it was set aside to honor George Washington, who had died the previous year. Back then, it was celebrated on Feb. 22, the day of Washington's actual birth. It remained an unofficial holiday until the late 1870s when it became a federal holiday. Then, in 1968 with the passage of the Uniform Holiday Bill, the day was moved to the third Monday in February each year.
