Monday is President’s Day! Did you know that the official federal holiday is commonly referred to as Washington’s Birthday? Which is odd considering that President’s Day is observed annually on the 3rd Monday of February and George Washington’s birthday is on February 22nd. To further complicate matters, Washington was technically born on February 11, 1731. Confused, yet? Washington was born when the Julian calendar was in use. During Washington’s lifetime, people in Great Britain and America switched the official calendar system from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar. As a result, those born before 1752 were told to add 11 days to their birth dates and those born between January 1 and March 25, should also add one year to be in sync with the new calendar. In summary, Washington’s birthday is February 22, 1732. Share these titillating facts with friends & family this holiday – perhaps while you enjoy all the activities & events Winona has to offer this week…
