    HEEYYY no fair, I want some snow! :mad:

    President's Day?? Is that America then?
    How cool - non-one cares bout old Gordon here but it'd be good to have a random day of to "celebrate" his existance or like sleep in and go and shopping and stuff.

    Eeerr...on topic: There's a little bit of snow here in Bedford in England but it's pathetic.
    Yes, I'm in America. Right outside of DC. Presidents Day celebrates the Presidents (obviously,lol). February is when both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays are. They both used to be separate national holidays. I guess the government felt that was too much time off work, though, so they just combined them into one day. It is always the 3rd Monday in February.

    Absolutely nothing. Seriously. It's just an excuse to get off work and school.
