Presidents Day is the common name for the federal holiday (US of course) officially designated as Washington's Birthday. In the late 1980s, the term Presidents Day came about to expand the focus of the holiday to honor another February President, Abraham Lincoln, and often other Presidents of the United States as well. It is celebrated on the third Monday of February.

In many American schools, the days leading up to the holiday often use Presidents Day to educate students on the history of the Presidents of the United States, especially Washington and Lincoln.

To be very frank about it, it's just a federal holiday which doesn't include anything that would be considered a "celebration" and is generally just looked forward to as another paid day off of work.
