    Tap into your patriotic side with these President’s Day-inspired goodies.

    By Chrissy Makris

    President’s Day probably isn’t as exciting as, say, Christmas or Halloween, but it is an important historical day that should be regarded as more than just a day off from school or work. President’s Day is intended to honor and celebrate all American chief executives with extra significance on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. While this holiday isn’t traditionally about gifts, let’s face it, nobody’s going to turn down a thoughtful present. This year, why not celebrate this educational holiday and inspire others with a healthy dose of patriotism? Red, white, and blue never looked so good!
