Third Monday of February
President’s Day

The Father of America, George Washington, was born on February 22. But in honor of our first President, the third Monday of February has been designated as the day to remember his stature in America’s life. In 1880, a federal holiday honoring George Washington was implemented by and Act of Congress for government offices in the District of Columbia and expanded in 1885 to include all federal offices. Originally, Washington’s actual birthday, February 22, was celebrated on the day of his birth, but in January 1971, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act shifted its observance to the third Monday of February, usually not being celebrated on his actual birthday. For this reason, “President’s Day” is generally the expression used to designate the day.

Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D., America's Founding Fathers and the Bible. Contrary to the contemporary mantra that America was birthed as a secular nation, the historical evidence demonstrates that America was founded by Christians who wished to enjoy the liberty to freely express their Christian faith. Lamentably, Christians have forgotten and neglected the Christian heritage bequeathed to them by America's Founding Fathers and have allowed secularists to disparage and deny what was given to them at such a great price. America's Founding Fathers and the Bible briefly describes a portion of America's Christian heritage, particularly during the rise of nationalism when America was shaping its national government.  Read more...
Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D., When the United States Capitol Was a Church. So deep and strong was the relationship of government to the Christian faith in America that the relationship was recognized in a variety of ways. Few realize that the United States Capitol was used as a church for years before it was used to convene the United States Congress. For nearly three-quarters of a century, the United States Capitol was used for church services. In fact, it became a meeting place for a number of churches in Washington, D. C. While secularists wish to keep this and many other similar historical facts quiet, the sincere Christian will wish to celebrate the spiritual heritage our Founding Fathers have bequeathed to us.  Read more...
