Washington's Birthday is the official name designated to what many of us know as President's Day. During the month of February the birthday of two of our greatest President's takes place... George Washington who was born on February 22 and Abraham Lincoln who was born on February 12.

However, Washington's birthday has been publicly celebrated since he was in office, before Abraham Lincoln was even born. Much of the debate over the name of the holiday springs from the fact that individual states can follow their own holiday list and many of them choose to also honor Lincoln, calling the celebration President's Day.

Just in case you would like separate images for the presidents, on the next two pages you will find a special graphic for Washington as well as Lincoln.
