The holidays switched from honoring President George Washington, one of our founders, on his Feb. 22 birthday to Presidents’ Day as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which sought to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers.

Imperial Stock Ranch, owned and operated by the Carver family, provided wool for the sweater, hat and other knit pieces worn by the U.S. Olympic team in the opening and closing ceremonies.
