Celebrating Presidents' Day 2005
Februasry 21, 2005 | Zac's Mom

Aside from a day off from work or school, no mail delivery or banking services and sometimes some pretty sales, Presidents' Days have pretty much come and gone without much fan fare around here. In fact, I can't say that (since finishing school many years ago) I've really given a lot of thought to Presidents' Day ~ that is until today.


TOPICS: AMERICA - The Right Way!!; Chit/Chat; History; Music/Entertainment
KEYWORDS: 4moreyears; bush; celebration; presidents; presidentsday
As I was fixing our morning coffee I started thinking about "Presidents' Day"
and it occurred to me how really special this particular Presidents' Day is ~
so I decided to celebrate it a little.



With prayers of gratitude for the blessing of George W. Bush as our President elect for another 4 years
I am proud to pay tribute to this very special Presidents' Day with all of you!

This is actually Washington's Birthday.

President's Day is nonsense.

St Patrick's Day is now "shamrock day".

Thanksgiving is "turkey day"

Lincoln's Birthday and Washington's Birthday are amalgamated in to generic "President's Day" -- as in honoring William Jefferson Clinton as well as William Henry Harrison.

Changing Christmas to the "winter holiday" hasn't taken yet so they seem intent on making it invisible and unsayable.

Happy President's Day.

Presidents' Day was originally intended to honor the February birthdays of the two greatest presidents of our republic, Washington who laid the foundation and Lincoln who saved it. But we've had some other great presidents, including a notable one who died a few months ago in Ronald Reagan. It's been a blessing from God that so far in our history we've always had the right man of the hour rise to the task when needed.

My girlfriend's kids didn't get today off. But they got MLK JR day off. I thought that was a bit odd...

Yeah ... I know .... that's one of the reasons I give very little thought to most of the "holidays" ....


but today I'm just thrilled that GW is my President and feel like celebrating it!

Wow! Thank you again!!! I correspond with a lot of the families of our service men in Iraq and I will pass the link to your neat web site on to them... I know they will enjoy and appreciate it as much as I have.

I've only recently purchased Flash MX 2004 and am currently trying to learn how to put together an SWF presentation. I have 2 or 3 in my head that I would love to be able to produce. It's going kind of slow though ~ slower than I'd like anyway....lol

If and when I get them together I post them and give you a ping. I think you will enjoy they. I certainly enjoyed the 2 you posted here and plan to spend a little time checking out the others on your site. Thanks again for sharing such great presentations!
