Presidents’ Day


When I was a kid growing up in Illinois, way back in the dark ages before there was such as thing as the Monday Holidays Bill, we celebrated Lincoln’s Birthday.

February 12th was a state holiday. I still think of Mr. Lincoln every year on that date.

Now it seems Presidents’ Day isn’t so much about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as it is about car, mattress and who-knows-what else sales. 🙁
