Washington's Birthday, President's Day, or Presidents' Day?
Posted on February 16 2017
Google "Presidents' Day" and half of the posts you'll see concern the proper placement of the apostrophe or make some mention of Washington's birthday. Historically, Presidents' Day (we've checked- there is no consistent grammar rule for the apostrophe so we've decided to follow our own state's official title), was a celebration just for Washington. It is in fact a state holiday, so each state has their own distinction. Here in Vermont, it is "Presidents' Day" yet in our neighboring New Hampshire, they prefer to call it "President's Day". Confusing, huh?
Well, whether or not your celebrating America’s first president or its 16th (Colorado and Ohio both designate it as "Washington-Lincoln Day"), take a look at our collections and find something patriotic and fun that works for you! We have a range of neckties, bow ties, and lapel pins that are the perfect accessory to add to your outfit!
