Event: Lincoln’s Birthday

Feb
12

Lincoln’s Birthday is a legal, public holiday in some U.S. states, observed on the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth on February 12, 1809 in Hodgensville, Kentucky.¬† Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio,¬†Missouri, and New York observe the holiday.

In other states, Lincoln’s birthday is not celebrated separately, as a stand-alone holiday. Instead Lincoln’s Birthday is combined with a celebration of President George Washington’s birthday (also in February) and celebrated either as Washington’s Birthday or as Presidents’ Day on the third Monday in February, simultaneously with the Federal holiday.
