2023 President’s Day

Happy Presidents' Day from the Polish Museum of America. Życzenia dobrego Dnia Prezydentów od Muzeum Polskiego w Ameryce!

President's Day is a federal holiday in the United States that is celebrated on the third Monday in February. The day is meant to honor the country's presidents, both past and present, and is a time to reflect on their contributions to the nation. Originally established in 1885 to recognize George Washington's birthday, the holiday was later expanded to include all past presidents. President's Day is a time to remember the important role that presidents have played in shaping the country's history and to appreciate their leadership and service to the American people. It is also a time to reflect on the qualities that make a good leader and to aspire to uphold these qualities in our own lives.

President Biden's visit to Ukraine today is a significant event not only for the country but also for the rest of the world. His presence in Ukraine is a clear signal of support for the country's independence and sovereignty, particularly in the face of ongoing tensions with Russia.
