Celebrating Presidents’ Day

White House

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.
