Happy President's Day!

Happy President's Day! A lesser-celebrated, yet no less important holiday in the United States. It's history comes from the blending of the original federally-observed holiday of Washington's Birthday and the non-federal holiday of Lincoln's Birthday. In 1971, legislation took effect that named the third Monday in February as the observation of Washington's Birthday, so as to clear up confusion for federal work schedules. Although still technically called "Washington's Birthday" (according to the Office of Personnel Management), this holiday has become "President's Day" over the past 20 years or so, in honor of all those who have served this country in that capacity.

In honor of President's Day, we would like to offer an additional 5% off of anything Red White or Blue in our store!
