The correct answer to this question is February 22. The first President of the United States is George Washington, and he was born on February 22, 1732. This date is the reason why we have President's Day. The day came about as a way to celebrate George Washington in his role as the first President of the United States.

The meaning of this day carried on until 1971, in which it became a day to celebrate all presidents who have served in the role. On this day, most of America takes a rest and do not work or attend school to honor those who have been leaders of the nation.

George Washington’s actual birthday is on February 11. He was born in the year 1731. There are still a lot of people who commemorate this day because they believe that George Washington has done a lot in order to change America from what it was to what it is right now.

For the longest time, Presidents Day was celebrated on February 11, but in order to commemorate all of the presidents that also served the United States after Washington, the celebration was changed to every third Monday of February. This means that the actual date may change year after year. In fact, the day that Presidents Day will be celebrated in the year 2020 is on February 17.

The actual birthday of George Washington is February 22, 1732. The birthday of George Washington has inspired the creation of President’s Day, but this is celebrated right now every third Monday of February instead of following a particular date.

George Washington is considered to be an important figure in America because he is America’s first president. He served the United States from 1789 to 1797. Before he became president, he was able to lead the Patriots to become independent.

A lot of people still want to commemorate him and what he did for America. As a result, most people do not have work on President’s Day.
