The Fascinating History Behind President’s Day

On Monday, the country will once again observe President’s Day, a federal holiday. The holiday is typically celebrated on the third Monday of February and is intended to honor the first man to serve as President of the United States: George Washington. Ever since Congress spearheaded the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, President’s Day has been observed between the 15th and 21st.
A fun fact of President’s Day is in its name. “President’s Day” is actually the colloquial name for the holiday, with the official name of it being, appropriately, Washington’s Birthday. Though it’s intended to honor Washington, the holiday has since come to serve as something of an occasion to honor current and former individuals that have served as president. Furthermore, the name of the holiday varies in different states, being also known as Presidents' Day or Washington's and Lincoln's Birthday.
A famous legend about George Washington was when he chopped down his father’s cherry tree as a child after being gifted a hatchet. When his father confronted him, young George admitted it, uttering his now famous line, “I cannot tell a lie.” As a result of this story, cherry pie is a popular food consumed on President’s Day.

Did You Watch Super Bowl LIII?

Another Super Bowl has come and gone and once again the New England Patriots came out on top after defeating the Los Angeles Rams. With this latest victory, the Patriots and their quarterback Tom Brady earn a sixth title in what ended up being one of the lowest scoring Super Bowls ever: 13-3.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski played a major role in helping his team win after stalling an offense during an important fourth-quarter drive, catching a pair of passes for 47 yards leading to a 2-yard touchdown run by Sony Michel. It would end up being the sole trip the Patriots would take to the end zone yet it still managed to help with earning the team the win. The “Gronk” is likely to be remembered as one of the NFL’s most acclaimed tight end blockers.
Despite their best efforts, halftime show performers Maroon 5 did little to cement their place in history as one of the all-time greatest Super Bowl performers. Much like the game itself, the show was not well-received.

Are We in for a Long Winter?

Tomorrow, the country will once again welcome the arrival of Groundhog Day. A tradition that began in 1887, the day has developed quite the following as hundreds of thousands of people come together to observe as the groundhog emerges from its burrow to find out whether the winter season will be sticking around or if spring is right around the corner. Should dark clouds be present, then spring is soon to arrive. If the sun is shining and the groundhog sees its shadow, then the polar vortex may not be going anywhere for another six weeks.
Groundhog Day maintains a strong fanbase in southeastern Pennsylvania and it is considered a very important day. To celebrate, “Groundhog Lodges” are established to celebrate the holiday with social events dubbed “fersommlinge” which have food and may also incorporate skits or plays, speeches and more. A dialect of Pennsylvania German dialect is the official event language and it must be spoken at all times. Anyone who is caught speaking a word in a different language such as English must pay a small penalty.
The borough of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is where Groundhog Day is celebrated in the greatest numbers and it is also where the famous Punxsutawney Phil groundhog resides.

The Wounded Warriors Ride

Did you notice an extra number of people biking through South Florida this past weekend? You may have caught a glimpse of the fifty veterans participating in the Wounded Warriors ride. This four-day ride is spearheaded by the Wounded Warriors Project, a charity that provides various events, programs, and services to veterans ever since the events of September 11, 2001. The organization has assisted over 70,000 people.
Last week, the riders gathered to be outfitted with their cycling gear that takes into account their injuries so that the ride remains as comfortable as it possibly can be. These veterans are men and women from all around the world. One participant, for example, served for more than five years before an injury she sustained required amputating her lower leg. Rides like this one go a long way in helping these veterans enjoy a lifestyle that’s as close to normal as possible while also reminding them they are doing the best they can regardless of the circumstances.
The Wounded Warriors ride began right here in Miami Beach and will continue until the riders make it all the way to Key West.
