HAPPY PRESIDENTS DAY 2013!
Warm wishes from the Westside gazette to all of you out there on this special occasion!
The day marks the celebration of the birthdays’ of the first President of the United States of America-George Washington and the abolisher of slavery-Abraham Lincoln. Their actual birthdays are on 22nd and 12th Feb respectively.
In the year 1968, the Government of the United States chose a particular day for this occasion, and came to a conclusion that every third Monday of February each year would be celebrated as the Presidents’ Day.
And in this year-the day falls on the 18th of Feb.
In many states the Presidents’ Day is also observed in the honor of all the Presidents of America.
