George Washington’s birthday

Today is the real Washington’s Birthday, not the watered down version celebrated as President’s Day and marketed as just another excuse for reckless consumer buying. Still trying to pay for Christmas? No problem, go out and buy a new car!

Massachustts attorney Doug Cornelius has a nice blog post on the history of the day, and how it drifted into being just another Monday holiday.
