5 Ways To Celebrate President’s Day!

Presidents’ Day, nestled between Lincoln’s birthday (February 12th) and Washington’s birthday (February 22nd), this federal holiday is observed on the third Monday of February and falls on Monday, February 15th this year.

  1. Have kids? Go here and find some great kids activities, games, crafts, and historical facts! Plan a small President’s Day party for your children and their friends and serve gourmet cookies to munch on while the kiddies are making log cabins out of pretzels and white cotton-ball wigs.

  2. Visit your nearest Museum of History.

  3. Attend or host a patriotic event—no events going on in your area and can’t make it to Washington D.C.? Host a President’s Day party of your own! Serve foods that are inspired by U.S. Presidents’ favorite foods. All of our Presidents were of course different in their tastes: from gourmets to medical restricted diets, some loved classic French cuisine (Jefferson, Kennedy), while others liked “down home” simple food (Adams, Johnson), and some efficiently viewed food as fuel (Lincoln, Wilson). Whatever you decide to serve, incorporating the national colors red, white and blue will transform any meal into one that is patriotic!

  4. Make an effort to support our troops and support our veterans. Whether that means sending letters, or monetary donations to our active troops, to visiting your veteran neighbor down the street (bring treats and ask him/her to share some of their stories!), a little attention for all of sacrifice and service they’ve given certainly goes a long way.

  5. Brush up on history (U.S. or otherwise) by watching a few clips on the History Channel or stop by Barnes & Noble and pick up a book or documentary about something in history that intrigues you.
