#WonderQuestions, Did you ever wonder why something is the way it is.
Today, is #PresidentsDay, why is February the month set aside to honor Presidents? Simple, George Washington was born in this month, along with Abraham Lincoln. Two well respected early presidents.
How did the holiday end up being the third Monday in February if Washington’s day of birth is the 22nd and Lincoln is the 12th? In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Bill, we refer to this as a 3 day holiday weekend.
Now that I answered those wonderments did you ever wonder, “How many presidents were actually born in February?” Answer 4, besides the above, Harrison, W. and Reagan.
“Which month has the most presidents’ births?” October with 6 presidents: Adams, J., Roosevelt, T., Hayes, Arthur, Eisenhower and Carter. You didn’t ask but September is the only month that has one out of 45 presidents with a birth in it, Taft.
To view this #PresidentsDay from a different perspective I wondered this question: “What Astrological Sign has most often been President?” It’s a tie between Scorpio and Aquarius.
