When Did George Washington’s Birthday Become ‘Presidents Day?’ Never.
Chock it up to the power of the 'digital age,' or 'word of mouth,' or whatever, but February 17th has never officially been declared 'Presidents Day.' It's still the day we put candles on the cake for our first occupier of the Oval office, of which he never really occupied; George Washington. So, are we simply catering to the idea of inclusiveness by honoring all of them and Washington has to share the ice cream?
Not that I care, really. I try as hard as I can to stay away from politics, especially on the show. Today I'm feeling brave and thought we'd travel down that road for once. Don't get me wrong, I have respect for the office of the President. So, in honor of 'that-Monday-most-of-us-get-a-day-off-from-work-cuz-of-some-politicians' - who, in your opinion, is the President that deserves the holiday designation? And although it's probably true, you can't say 'all of them' because that would ruin my bit.
It will probably be a slow-phones day because if you're like me, you just don't go there. But if you're bold and don't really give a flip what anyone thinks, call the show at 764-ROCK or tell us on Facebook. Happy 'Commander-in-Chief' Day.
