    Today is Presidents’ Day. So where did this holiday come from and what does it mean for you today?

    FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports:

    Audio clip:

    Okay it’s Presidents’ Day. But what does that mean?

    It’s a day to hail all our 44 chiefs. Congress created Presidents’ Day in the 1970’s  between Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthdays to give us another three-day holiday weekend. So a lot of people are off today.

    (‘Lincoln’) “It is a self evident truth.”

    Not a bad day to catch a screening of “Lincoln”, which could win the Best Picture Oscar. Or you can visit a presidential library.

    (Reagan) “Letting you keep more of your earnings…”

    The Reagan Library in California will have storytelling by presidential lookalikes.

    Or you can do what a lot of people do…

    (Commercial) “Our annual Presidents’ Day sale starts…”

    Go shopping.
