Across the country, it's a semi-celebration
of a holiday with uncertain designation!
Is it President's Day? Presidents' Day? Presidents Day? I know how to say it, but I don't know where the apostrophe goes.
On top of that, the federal government still has it as Washington's Birthday, but the law that put it on a Monday also made sure that it never actually fell on the man's birthday - which would be exactly a week from today.
And a lot of office workers have the day off. But retail workers seem to be busy operating cash registers in the hopes that office workers will show up to buy stuff!
One thing I like about just calling it Washington's Birthday is that it celebrates the man's whole career, which covered a lot more than his 8 years as president.
I mean, if it weren't for his generalship in the revolutionary war, we might well have lost. And we'd all be talking about "colours" instead of "colors".
Here's to General Washington -
He got the revolution done.
