Flags of the Day

Today is the federal holiday for Washington's Birthday. It is also the Feast of St Eucherius.

The Washington's Birthday holiday is often refered to as "Presidents' Day". This is not correct. The law establishing federal holidays, 5 USC 6103(a), lists the third Monday in February as Washington's Birthday. There may be an observance of "Presidents' Day" in some states, but there is no such holiday for the United States of America.
