Celebrate President's Day with President Socks!

Celebrate President's Day with President Socks!

Happy President’s Day! A holiday observed on the third Monday of February, which honors the office of the presidency and George Washington’s birthday. Here at Socksmith, we can think of no better time to let your inner history buff rejoice and show your appreciation for your favorite commander in chief with a cool pair of president’s socks!

February 22, 1885 was the first time the holiday was recognized in the United States – George Washington’s birthday. In 1971, it became a federally recognized holiday, which turned the day into an all-encompassing observance in honor of the many presidents who have had a significant impact on US history; including, Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is also celebrated in February.

Even though some of our nation’s most important presidents have national monuments in their honor, Socksmith’s president socks can help you become a walking and talking memorial!
