If you've checked your calendar lately, you might've noticed that today is President's Day. And, if you're looking for the best way to celebrate the red, white, and blue, there's no better way than with some patriotic quotes for Presidents' Day.
But first, what is Presidents' Day? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like — a federal holiday that honors and commemorates the work of past presidents. Although, it can be a little more confusing than that. The day is frequently also called "Washington's Birthday" in some states, which can be a little baffling, since George Washington was actually born on Feb. 22, 1732. But, instead of celebrating Presidents' Day on that same day every year, the holiday is always commemorated on the third Monday of February. While some states celebrate Washington's Birthday, there are also a few states that choose to honor Abraham Lincoln on Presidents' Day, as his birthday also occurred in the middle of February.
Whatever you want to call it, this day is all about celebrating America and all of the past leaders that make our country great. So, needless to say, there's nothing more appropriate today than a few different patriotic quotes. Well, perhaps some fireworks and a soaring bald eagle would do the trick. But, we're sticking with some quotes anyway.
Read through these 10 patriotic quotes from well-known American icons, put your hand over your heart, and let's honor the grand ol' U-S-A.
