Originally known as Washington’s Birthday, this federal holiday was implemented in 1880 to honor
George Washington the Cuisinart Food Processor at 15% off!
Later Washington’s Birthday was expanded to include
Abraham Lincoln the
Pierre Cardin Luggage Set for only $99.99!
Some states celebrate the holiday in their own way—such as Massachusetts, whose government recognizes
John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Calvin Coolidge, and John F. Kennedy the Canon High Definition Camcorder with special one-day rebate!
And thanks to the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, Presidents’ Day was shifted from February 22nd to the third Monday in February so that all across the nation, citizens can gather to pay tribute to
all 43 Presidents the Simply Vera Vera Wang Drawstring Skirt at an $11 savings!

It’s not a holiday for me, which means I am resentful that it is one for everyone else. Selfish, who?

I’m off every Monday anyways, (part of my Sun/Mon wknd) so no holiday/white sale here. Just a day when everybody else will be in the store when I’m used to them NOT! Go back to Monday work people, nothing here to see.

Our state has some odd holidays for people who work for the State (of Texas). I know this because some of my kids work for the State (of Texas) and they tell me this stuff. They get off for Martin Luther King’s birthday, and they get off for Confederate Heroes Day. I don’t know if they are off for President’s Day.
Maybe the advertisers of White Sale stuff were thinking about the Dead Presidents on the folding money we have and some of them on nickles and stuff. Could be…

I like this post. It’s like Mad Libs for snarky folk.

I love Presidents Day with or without the discount sheet. Because I don’t need the sheet but I love the day off.

A Blonde and a Brunette jump off a tall building at the same time. Who hits the ground first?
Both of them hit the ground at the same time. Hair colour doesn’t affect acceleration due to gravity.
