In Celebration of Presidents' Day

When was the last time you sent someone a greeting card to commemorate Presidents' Day?

Or, before Presidents' Day was declared in 1971,
did you share greetings for
George Washington's birthday on February 22?

Or Abraham Lincoln's birthday on February 12?  

It was once common to exchange postcards on important dates and, like other major holidays, our ancestors sent postcards to celebrate the Washington and Lincoln birthdays.

I have prepared a small vignette for Presidents' Day
to honor these two important men in our history.
