Celebrated the 3rd Monday of every February in honor of George Washington’s birthday, Presidents’ Day occurs between February 15th and 21st. President’s Day is a national holiday and is typically observed with, among other things, no school for students and closed banks. At Acceptance Insurance, we stay open so we can service our customers should they need us!
That’s not to say we don’t like to have a little fun though! We’re celebrating Presidents' Day by sharing some interesting facts about some of our presidents:
James Madison (president #4) was our shortest president at 5’ 4.” Abraham Lincoln (#16) was our tallest president at 6’4.”
William Henry Harrison was our 9th president. His grandson, Benjamin Harrison, was our 23rd.
John Tyler (#10) had 15 children.
James K. Polk (#11) was our first president to have his photograph taken while in office.
Calvin Coolidge (#30) had two pet raccoons named Reuben and Rebecca.
