What's open, closed on Presidents Day?

Most banks will be closed though you may find a branch here or there in a store that's open.

Schools: Closed. Some universities, such as Cleveland State, also close.

Presidents' Day falls on the third Monday in February in honor of our first president's birthday. Others are trying to make You're Fired- Trump's catchphrase from The Apprentice- trend.

While Presidents Day began as an unofficial holiday to celebrate George Washington's February 22 birthday, it didn't become a federal holiday until 1879, when President Rutherford B. Hayes signed it into law, and not a national bank holiday until six years later, according to the History Channel. City, state and federal offices stayed open last week (except state courts, which closed along with county offices).

If history is any help, stocks tend to inch higher on George Washington's birthday. In addition, some recognize the day as Abraham Lincoln's birthday as well, since he was also born in February.

Washington should have a standalone holiday and if the country wished to extend a similar honor to Lincoln, it can be done with enough separation so as not to overlap each other. Here's a brief guide to navigate this federal holiday without wasting too much time heading to locations that are closed.

In other words, while most of us have the day off, liberals are treating Presidents Day as just another day with a "Y" in it...

Some liberals out there never got the memo, or are instead choosing to ignore, that Presidents Day was never designed as an occasion for people to unload their opinions about the present President.

"Yes, it is. Happy Presidents' Day".
