At some point, we stopped celebrating only George Washington's birthday and extended the holiday to include all former presidents of the U.S. Therefore, the day should rightly be called Presidents' Day, not Presidents Day or President's Day. It seems that many just don't know where to put the apostrophe. Jim calls me the "Grammar Police," a title I own up to. It really bugs me when people misspell words or, in this case, put the apostrophe in the wrong place.
Today does not seem like a holiday. Some banks are open, some are closed. Some businesses are open and others are shuttered. Some schools are out on vacation for the week (I think Massachusetts and Maine). Some charter schools in NH were in session today, as was Nashua High School but in that case, the kids were sent home early due to someone putting a bullet in a toilet. (That individual probably just wanted the day off). The post office was closed as it is a federal holiday.
There was very little traffic this morning at 8 a.m. when we ventured out to go eat breakfast at Friendly's Restaurant and inside the establishment, there was only one other gentleman eating during the whole time we were there.
Today we celebrate George Washington's birthday, as well as all the other presidents, a later add-on to the day. Enjoy!
