The actual reason the date was set in 1968 was because of Martin Luther King's birthday being celebrated in January. Prior to that, both Feb 12 and Feb 22 were holidays. Feb 12 for Lincoln and Feb 22 for Washington. In order to do away with one of the days, they combined the two and came up with President's day: - More Articles Click Here WWW.LIFESTORYBREKING.COM

Lincoln's Birthday was never a Federal holiday.

Public school teachers & government employees get far more paid holidays/time off than the average American worker.

They should take this added benefit into consideration when asking for a raise.

This is true yet they are always clamoring for more pay.

Everyone could use more pay.
