Lincoln's Birthday is Feb. 12, and Washington's Birthday is Feb. 22. IN many, perhaps most, communities the second or third week of February is designated as President's Week, and it is a school holiday. Lots of families take ski vacations that week, and it is the second-biggest ski week of the season (behind Christmas week).

Very few Americans treat Lincoln's Birthday as a separate holiday, or make any special observance. Only two days later is Valentine's Day, which is a major event for many, especially women who expect to receive gifts and cards and flowers, dinners in nice restaurants, and the like.
