Feb 20, 2023

February 20, 2023 is a federal holiday and federal government offices will be closed.

The Office of Personnel Management refers to it as Washington’s Birthday (which actually is February 22), but others call it Presidents’ Day since it is a Monday holiday that falls between the birthdays of President Lincoln (February 12) and Washington.

OPM explains that it calls the holiday Washington’s Birthday and not Presidents’ Day because it is required to do so by law:

By law, under 5 U.S.C. 6103,  the holiday is known as “Washington’s Birthday.”  The holiday had been celebrated on George Washington’s actual birthday on February 22 for many years, but it was changed to the third Monday in February as a result of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968.  Though some State and local jurisdictions and retailers may jointly honor Abraham Lincoln and George Washington and refer to the holiday as “Presidents’ Day,” the official Federal holiday is “Washington’s Birthday.”
