Washington’s Birthday in Indiana

In Indiana, Washington’s Birthday is observed on Christmas Eve, or the day preceding the weekend if Christmas falls on Saturday or Sunday.
Washington’s Birthday, national holiday, also widely known as "Presidents’ Day", is celebrated each year on the third Monday in February.
Interesting facts about President Washington:
George Washington started school when he was six years old. He left school at 15 to become a surveyor because his mother couldn’t afford to send him to college.
At 26, he married Martha Dandridge Custis, a widow who already had two children, Jackie and Patsy. Washington never had any children of his own.
At six feet, two inches tall and 200 pounds, he was one of our biggest presidents.
Some of his favorite dishes were cream of peanut soup, mashed sweet potatoes with coconut, and string beans with mushrooms.
He bred hound dogs that he treated like members of the family. He gave some of them unusual names: Tarter, True Love, and Sweet Lips.
Toothaches bothered him for years. When he was 57, he had all his teeth pulled. From then on, he wore ivory false teeth set in a silver plate.
Although he helped plan the nation’s new capital city that was named for him, he never lived there. New York City and, later, Philadelphia were the nation’s capitals while he was president.
