Presidents Day Trivia
When George Washington took office as the first President of the United States, Americans began celebrating his birthday. His actual date of birth, however, was tough to determine back then. England used a Julian-style calendar until 1752; according to it, Washington’s birthday was February 11. According to the Gregorian calendar that we all use today, however, his birthday was February 22. In 1880, Congress made that date a federal holiday, the first to honor an individual.
In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Bill, which created as many three-day weekends as possible (instead of having random federal holidays in the middle of the work-week). As a result, Washington’s Birthday was moved to the third Monday in February—even though that’s not always his actual DOB.
The most common religious affiliation among presidents has been Episcopalian, followed by Presbyterian.
The ancestry of 42 presidents is limited to the following seven heritages, or some combination thereof: Dutch, English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Swiss, or German.
