As you may know today is Presidents’ Day.
How Presidents’ Day came about:
Nowadays, though, many of us — whether we be employees or students — don’t get any weekdays off at all in February, or we’re offered a single holiday that falls on the third Monday in February and is neither Lincoln’s nor Washington’s Birthday but some hybrid known as “Presidents’ Day.”

Even while President of the United States he not only attended church on Sunday, but refrained from all official business on that day. He would not even allow visitors into the Presidential mansion on the Lord’s day. The only exception was a Mr. Trumbull, who was one of the most pious and godly men in America at that time, with whom he was wont to have discussions in the evening before retiring.

Many did not know what he did, but a nephew who lived with him for twenty years followed him one day and shortly after his uncle had entered the study, he quietly opened the door and found Washington kneeling before a chair with the candle, and there in the chair the open Bible. From nine until ten o’clock every night, with perfect punctuality, he would spend that time in prayer and the reading of the Word, even as he did every morning and night when he was fighting the Revolutionary War. And he called all of his soldiers together each morning for prayer. He would arise at four o’clock in the morning and return to the same study, the same candle, to the same Bible and to the same prayer. Thus he began each day.
